Nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) is a second messenger in muscarinic receptor-induced contraction of guinea pig trachea.
Nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) is increasingly being demonstrated to be involved in calcium signaling in many cell types and species. Although it has been shown to play a role in smooth muscle cell contraction in several tissues, nothing is known about its possible role in tracheal smooth muscle, a muscle type that is clinically relevant to asthma. To determine whether NAADP functions as a second messenger in tracheal smooth muscle contraction, we used the criteria set ...Expand abstract
