Özet

Background. Muscular contraction of the gallbladder is the primary determinant of bile delivery into duedonum. Gallbladder filling and emptying are influenced by both inhibitory and excitatory stimuli, and NO plays a key role in normal relaxation. In this study, to determine whether nicotine acts on the gallbladder muscle, the mechanism of its effect on strips of guinea pig gallbladder was studied in vitro.
