Vas deferens - A model used to establish sympathetic cotransmission.
TRENDS PHARMACOL SCI
131 - 139.
The vas deferens has been used as a model for many diverse studies of different aspects of autonomic neuro-transmission since its introduction including, in particular, sympathetic cotransmission involving release of ATP and neuropeptide Y together with noradrenaline and prejunctional and postjunctional neuromodulation. It has also been used to study sympathetic reinnervation following vasectomy and castration, as well as the deleterious effects of diabetes, hypertension and chronic alcohol.
