High-fat diet-induced obesity alters nitric oxide-mediated neuromuscular transmission and smooth muscle excitability in the mouse distal colon

Yogesh Bhattarai, David Fried, Brian Gulbransen, Mark Kadrofske, Roxanne Fernandes, Hui Xu, James Galligan

American Journal of Physiology - Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology Published 1 August 2016 Vol. 311 no. 2, G210-G220 DOI: 10.1152/ajpgi.00085.2016

We tested the hypothesis that colonic enteric neurotransmission and smooth muscle cell (SMC) function are altered in mice fed a high-fat diet (HFD).  [read more]
