    Contractions of an echinoderm (sp. Sclerodactyla briareus) smooth muscle, the longitudinal muscle of the body wall (LMBW), were evoked by acetylcholine (ACh) and agonists: epibatidine, muscarine and nicotine (in order of force generation:..

    ..Like 2-hydroxy-saclofen, bicuculline (10(-5) M) had a profound cross-desensitizing effect on the LMBW to subsequent exposures to GABA and ACh. ACh was unable to potentiate the sustained contractions induced by bicuculline...
