Many factors may influence the release of neurotransmitters from airway nerves [1]. This is likely to be important in physiological control of airway functions and may be particularly relevant in airway diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Airway smooth muscle is clearly an important target tissue in asthma. An increase in smooth muscle mass is a common feature in both human asthma and experimental models of chronic allergen challenge, and alterations in in vivo smooth muscle responsiveness might be an important determinant of airway hyperresponsiveness. Airway smooth muscle. Single-unit smooth muscle is found in the walls of hollow organs; multiunit smooth muscle is found in airways to the lungs and large arteries. Single-unit smooth muscle cells contract synchronously, they are coupled by gap junctions, and they exhibit spontaneous action potential.

Jun 06,  · There is broad agreement that, in asthma, increased airway smooth muscle mass, in part due to smooth muscle hyperplasia, is a very significant component of airway remodeling. However, significant debate persists on the origins of these airway smooth muscle by: There is increasing evidence for long-term communication between nerves and smooth muscle cells during development and throughout adult life. To date, the trophic interactions between nerves and airway musculature have attracted little interest, consequently, much of the information presented here is drawn from studies using other smooth muscles. The airways of mammals are endowed with smooth muscle. The main effects of the contractile activity of this musculature are: i. to alter the calibre of the airway, hence affecting air pressure and air flow; ii. to alter the rigidity of the airway wall. However, the physiological role of airways smooth muscle is still a matter of speculation [1].Cited by: 5.
