  • contractile
  • In this study we investigated the role of contractile prostaglandins and Rho-kinase in growth factor-induced ASM contraction. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The results indicate that growth factors induce ASM contraction through contractile prostaglandins - not derived from the epithelium - which in turn rely on Rho-kinase for their contractile effects. (biomedcentral.com)
  • preparations
  • In addition, the effects of the selective FP-receptor antagonist AL-8810 (10 μM) and the selective EP 1 -antagonist AH-6809 (10 μM) on growth factor-induced contractions were investigated, both in intact and epithelium-denuded preparations. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The FP-receptor antagonist AL-8810 (10 μM) significantly reduced (approximately 50 %) and the EP 1 -antagonist AH-6809 (10 μM) abrogated growth factor-induced contractions, similarly in intact and epithelium-denuded preparations. (biomedcentral.com)

  • Despite intense studies, several molecular events in the contraction process are poorly understood, including the relationship between force-generation and phosphate-release in the ATP-turnover. (hindawi.com)
