Abstract

The effects of substance P (SP) and acetylcholine (ACh) on membrane currents were compared using freshly isolated smooth muscle cells from guinea-pig ileum. Both SP (100 nM) and ACh (10μM) induced inward currents at negative holding potentials. The ACh-induced current, but not the SP-induced current, showed relaxation upon voltage-stepping. The SP-induced current was increased by hyperpolarization more negative than -50 mV whereas the ACh-induced current was decreased by hyperpolarization. The results suggest that the SP-induced inward current is elicited via an ionic pathway different from that involved with ACh-activated channels.
