Abstract

Abstract The substance P antagonist, [ d-Pro 4- d-Trp 7,9,10]substance P 4–11, caused a parallel shift to the right of the cholecystokinin (CCK-8) dose-response curve in guinea pig ileum longitudinal muscle without changing the maximal contraction. The shift of the CCK-8 dose response was markedly reduced after desensitization of the tissues to substance P (SP). The SP antagonist had no effect upon CCK-8 responses of the guinea pig gall bladder, [ 125I]CCK pancreatic binding or contractions of the guinea pig ileum produced by acetylcholine or electrical stimulation. The data provide additional evidence for the involvement of SP in the action of CCK-8 on the guinea pig ileum but not the gall bladder.
