TMps were treated with carbachol (CARB) (100 nM) in the absence or presence of 1 μM pirenzepine (PIR), methoctramine (MET) or 4-DAMP. Lane C, control (TMps without treatment). Bands were quantified in optical density units per square millimeter (OD/mm). The molecular mass indicated at the left corresponds to the VEGF isoform detected. One representative experiment of three is shown.
