Electrical field stimulation (EFS) caused voltage dependent relaxations in the isolated frog upper oesophageal circular segments precontracted with carbachol (CCh). The influence of NG-nitro L-arginine (L-NOARG) on these relaxations was investigated. 10-6 M, 10-5 M, 5x10-5 M and 10-4 M concentrations of this substance inhibited them in a dose dependent manner. 4x10-4 M L-arginine (L-ARG) prevented the inhibitory action of 5x10-5 M and 10-4 M L-NOARG while 4x10-4 M D-arginine (D-ARG) did not protect against the effect of L-NOARG. Neither L-ARG nor D-ARG had any significant effects on the electrically-induced
relaxations. The results suggested that nitric oxide (NO) is involved in the relaxations induced by EFS possibly mediated by non adrenergic non cholinergic (NANC) nerves.

Keywords: Frog oesophageal strips, nitric oxide, electrical field stimulation.
