    Background: Nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) is a potent endogenous Ca2+ mobilizing second messenger that is known to release Ca2+ from the acidic endolysosomal vesicles. Our previous work showed that intracellular application of NAADP led to the increase in contractions of...

    Rationale: Previous in vitro research demonstrated that ascorbate enhances potency and duration of activity of agonists binding to alpha 1 adrenergic and histamine receptors. Objectives: Extending this work to beta 2 adrenergic systems in vitro and in vivo. Methods: Ultraviolet spectroscopy was...

    The article presents information on the distal colon of the guinea-pig which is relaxed by non-adrenaline by isoprenaline and by the stimulation of fibres running with the colonic nerves or intramurally. The relaxations in response to stimulation of the colonic nerves have a...

    The peripheral airway innervation of the lower respiratory tract of mammals is not completely functionally characterized. Recently, we have shown in rats that precision-cut lung slices (PCLS) respond to electric field stimulation (EFS) and provide a useful model to study neural airway responses...

    EXPOSURE to dust may involve co-exposure to agents which are allergens, together with those which are pro-inflamm atory. To study the effects of such a coexposure, the humoral and inflammatory responses were studied in guinea pigs inhaling the T-celldependent antigen ovalbumin (OVA) and the...
