Cholinergic dilatation and constriction of feline cerebral blood vessels are mediated by stimulation of phosphoinositide metabolism via two different muscarinic receptor subtypes.

Abstract : The muscarinic receptors involved in phosphoinositide (PI) hydrolysis have been pharmacologically characterized in cat cerebral blood vessels. Carbachol elicited a concentration-dependent increase in inositol phosphate accumulation [inositol monophosphate, bisphosphate, trisphosphate (IP3) and tetrakisphosphate] in both major cerebral arteries and small pial vessels, which reached 140-280% of baseline at 10(-3) M carbachol (referred to as maximal effect). However, the inositol phosphate accumulation response was found to be biphasic with a submaximal effect (30-50% of the maximal stimulation) obtained at low carbachol concentrations (< 10(-5) M). Endothelial denudation induced a virtual disappearance of the submaximal PI response without affecting that elicited by high concentrations of carbachol. The pharmacology of the two carbachol-induced PI responses was investigated by comparing the potency of selected muscarinic antagonists to block the IP3 accumulation induced by 10(-7) M (endothelium-dependent submaximal effect) and 10(-4) M (endothelium-independent near-maximal effect) carbachol. In both major arteries and pial vessels, the activation of IP3 production by 10(-4) M carbachol was similarly inhibited by muscarinic antagonists with the following averaged rank order of potency (in -log IC50): 4-diphenylacetoxy-N-methylpiperidine methiodide (4-DAMP; 8.65) > pirenzepine (8.28) > 6-chloro-5,10-dihydro-5-[(1-methyl-4-piperidinyl)acetyl]-11H- dibenzo[b,e][1,4]diazepine-11-one (UH-AH 371; 7.87) > 11-[[2-[(diethylamino)methyl]-1-piperidinyl]acetyl]-5,-11- dihydro-6H-pyridol[2,3-b][1,4]benzodiazepine-6-one (AF-DX 116; 6.62), a pharmacological profile compatible with an M1 receptor subtype.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
