Prostaglandin d 2 potentiates cholinergic responsiveness in guinea pig trachea






Journal of Autonomic Pharmacology 6(3): 181-186

Prostaglandin d 2 potentiates cholinergic responsiveness in guinea pig trachea

1 PGD2 dose dependently potentiated the parasympathetic-induced contraction in guinea-pig trachea in vitro. This phenomenon was much more evident in ovalbumin-sensitized guinea-pig trachea. 2 Indomethacin pretreatment enhanced the capacity of PGD2 to potentiate cholinergic-induced contraction in normal but not in ovalbumin-sensitized guinea-pig. 3 PGD2 shifted to the left the curve of the exogenous acetylcholine-induced contraction in guinea-pig trachea, indicating a postsynatptic site of action of PGD2. 4 These data suggest a role of PGD2 in the genesis of hyperreactivity of tracheal smooth muscles, particularly in a model of pulmonary anaphylaxis.

Guinea-pig isolated tracheal preparations in which the epithelium had been removed exhibited a greater contractile response to histamine (intact: 1.91 +/- 0.12 g; n = 6 and rubbed: 2.76 +/- 0.15 g; n = 11; P less than 0.001).

Somatostatin (up to 10(-5) M) did not change resting tension, but it potentiated the contractile response to...
