Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Is there a role for P2 receptors other than the P2X1 subtype in parasympathetic cotransmission in the urinary bladder?

Kennedy, C. (2008) Is there a role for P2 receptors other than the P2X1 subtype in parasympathetic cotransmission in the urinary bladder? Purinergic Signalling, 4. S200-S200. ISSN 1573-9538

Abstract

Parasympathetic nerves innervate the detrusor muscle of the urinary bladder, but a non-cholinergic component ofneurotransmission was recognised over 100 years ago (Langley & Anderson, 1895). Subsequently, ATP was identified asthe cotransmitter with acetylcholine (Kasakov & Burnstock, 1983). Here we have determined the effects of P2X receptorantagonists on the non-cholinergic component of neurotransmission.
