Abstract

To investigate whether the responses of the pig bladder to isoprenaline (a nonselective β-adrenoceptor agonist) are influenced by the presence of an intact urothelium and whether any influence might be attributed to the release of nitric oxide (NO), since stimulation of β-adrenoceptors induces a direct relaxation of detrusor smooth muscle and β-adrenoceptors are also present on the urothelium.
