Figure 1

Cholesterol diet and cholinergic contractions of the longitudinal muscle of the jejunum. Effects of cholesterol diet on cholinergic (carbachol) – elicited contractions of the jejunum for ground squirrels on a trace (0.027%; Low) vs. enriched (1%; High) cholesterol diet for animals treated with either vehicle (A) or tegaserod (B). Cumulative dose-response curve to carbachol were constructed. * High greater than Low (P < 0.05); N = 8–9.
