Possible Interaction: Capsaicin and Carbachol



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Capsaicin inhibited catecholamine secretion (IC50=9.5, 11.8, and 62 μM) stimulated by carbachol , an agonist of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, by veratridine, an activator of voltage-dependent Na+ channels, and by high K+, an activator of voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels, respectively.

In a solution containing 0.5 mM Ca2+ and in the presence of carbachol (10 microM) capsaicin evoked a fast concentration-dependent relaxation of the muscle that was usually followed by a smaller, slower, relaxant response.

However, the increased sensitivity to carbachol and to electrical stimulation seen after capsaicin treatment indicates the development of a supersensitivity to muscarinic receptor stimulation.
The concentration-response curve to carbachol as well as the frequency-response curve to electrical stimulation were significantly shifted to the left in bladder muscle after capsaicin treatment.
