Signal transduction pathway that mediates motilin- and gastrin-induced contraction of antral smooth muscle cells was investigated in rats. The results are as follows. (1) Motilin and gastrin induced contraction of isolated gastric smooth muscle cells in a dose-dependent manner. (2) Motilin- and gastrin-induced antral smooth muscle cell contraction was inhibited by antibodies against G_(ai-3). Motilin and gastrin caused an increase of Guanosine-5^-(3-[~(35)S]thio) triphosphate ([~(35)S]GTP#gamma#S) binding of G_(ai-3). (3) Contraction of antral muscle cells induced by motilin and gastrin was inhibited by the phospholipase C (PLC) inhibitor U-73122 and the IP_(3) receptor antagonist heparin.
