The selective tachykinin NK1 receptor agonists, septide ([Glp6,Pro9]substance P-(6-11)) and [Sar9]substance P sulfone, both produced concentration-dependent contraction of the circular muscle of the guinea-pig ileum (EC50 values 36 and 84 pM, respectively). The potent and selective NK1 receptor antagonist (??)CP 96, 345 antagonized and the response to septide with significantly higher affinity than it did the response to [Sar9]substance P sulfone (pA2 values 9.24 and 8.17, respectively) without modifying the response to the selective NK2 receptor agonist, [??-Ala8]neurokinin A-(4-10). These findings indicate that the septide-sensitive receptor in the circular muscle of the guinea-pig ileum is recognized with high affinity by the NK1 receptor selective antagonist (??)-CP 96,345. ?? 1993.
