Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of the soluble guanylyl cyclase inhibitors methylene blue and LY83583 (6-anilino-5,8- quinolinedione) on relaxation and increases in intracellular guanosine 3',5'- cyclic monophosphate (cGMP) concentration ([cGMP](i)) induced by sodium nitroprusside, 3-morpholinosydnonimine (SIN-I) and diethylamine-nitric oxide (NO) in porcine tracheal smooth muscle in vitro. We measured (1) the effect of NO donors on isometric force and [cGMP](i) and (2) the ability of methylene blue and LY83583 to antagonize these effects. In muscle strips contracted with carbachol (0.1-0.3 μM), both sodium nitroprusside and diethylamine-NO caused relaxation and an increase in [cGMP](i). By contrast, SIN-I caused a relaxation which was not associated with a concomitant increase in [cGMP](i). Methylene blue (10 μM) and LY83583 (10 μM) completely blocked the increase in [cGMP](i) induced by sodium nitroprusside and diethylamine-NO; however substantial relaxation remained. It is concluded that in porcine airway smooth muscle, (1) relaxation induced by some NO donors may occur without a concomitant increase in [cGMP]i; and (2) whereas relaxation induced by some NO donors may be associated with increases in [cGMP](i), the relaxation is not completely dependent upon it.
