Abstract

To determine which types of voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels mediate tachykinin release in the isolated rabbit iris sphincter muscle, we examined the effects of several Ca2+ channel modulators on contractions induced by either an elevation of the extracellular KCl concentration or application of the Na+ channel activator veratridine. Contractions caused by either 45.9 mM KCl or veratridine (10 mu M) were inhibited byspantide (10 mu M), a tachykinin receptor antagonist, and capsaicin (10 mu M), a tachykinin-depleting agent, but were not changed by atropine. Nicardipine, an L-type Ca2+ channel blocker, inhibited contractions induced by KCl and veratridine in a concentration-dependent manner. omega-Conotoxin GVIA (1 mu M), an N-type Ca2+ channel blocker, inhibited only contractions induced by lower concentrations of KCl, both whenapplied alone and when combined with nicardipine. Bay K 8644, an L-type Ca2+ channel activator, caused a spantide- and nicardipine-sensitive contraction in muscles partially depolarized with 15.9 mM KCl, and enhanced contractions induced by 15.9 mM KCl and veratridine (2 mu M) omega-Agatoxin TVA (0.3 mu M), a P-type voltage-dependent Ca2+ channel blocker, did not affect contractions induced by either KCl or veratridine. Contractions induced by exogenous substance P were not modified by any of the Ca2+ channel blockers or by Bay K 8644. These results suggest that, in the rabbit iris sphincter muscle, L- and N-type voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels are involved in neurotransmitter release from tachykininergic nerves elicited by high KCl and by veratridine.
