We have tested the ability of several B2 antagonists on the responses of the open-circuited isolated canine tracheal epithelium to the luminal addition of Bradykinin (BK), Lys-BK, and substance P (SP). All three peptides produced biphasic changes in transmural potential difference (PD), an initial decrease (dip) followed by an increase (rise). The B2 antagonists D-Arg0 [Hyp3,Thi5,8,D-Phe7]BK (B5630) reversibly inhibited both the dips and the rise with IC50 values of 2.01 x 10(-8) and 1.54 x 10(-7) M, respectively. The responses to SP were unaffected even with high concentrations of the antagonist. Other antagonists tested [D-Phe1,7,Thi5,8]BK (B4158), [D-Phe2,7]BK (B4404), and [D-Phe7,Hyp8]BK (B5092) were ineffective.
