Their pharmacological activity has been proven in both "in vivo" and "in vitro" studies of hypermotility. "In vitro" experiments showed that they possess antimuscarinic activity at nM level but only pinaverium and otilonium are endowed with calcium channel blocker properties. These latter compounds relaxed the gastrointestinal smooth muscle mainly through a specific inhibition of calcium ion influx through L-type voltage operated calcium channels.
Responses of unknown intermediate mechanism? activation of PLA2? activation of PLC b (possibly direct G protein bg subunit activation)? activation of MAPKinase? activation of large conductance calcium-activated potassium channels? activation of L type voltage operated calcium channels.
