Abstract

8-Iso-prostaglandin F(2 alpha) is present in increased amounts in airway inflammation. 8-Iso-prostaglandin F(2 alpha) constricts the airways via the activation of thromboxane A(2) receptors. However, thromboxane A(2) receptors are also present pre-junctionally on cholinergic nerve terminals innervating guinea pig trachea. We have demonstrated that 8-iso-prostaglandin F(2 alpha) inhibited electrical field stimulation-evoked [3H]acetylcholine release in a concentration-dependent manner, an effect that was not inhibited by the selective thromboxane A(2) receptor antagonist 4(Z)-6-[(2,4,5 cis)2-(2-chlorophenyl)-4-(2-hydroxyphenyl)1,3-dioxan-5-yl]hexenoic acid (ICI 192,605). These data suggest that 8-iso-prostaglandin F(2 alpha) inhibits acetylcholine release through a receptor distinct from the thromboxane A(2) receptor and provides evidence that isoprostanes may have a 'dual' role as both beneficial and deleterious mediators in airway disease.
