Substance P (SP) has been indicated as a main mediator of neurogenic inflammation, leading to vasodilation, increase in vascular permeability and modulation of immune cell function. Certain vascular effects produced by SP are endothelium mediated. We have studied the effect of SP and of selective NK-1, NK-2 and NK-3 receptor agonists on migration of cultured capillary endothelial cells of bovine origin. Our results indicate that SP (10(-14)-10(-6) M) induces a concentration-dependent migration of endothelial cells with maximal activity at 10(-10) M. This effect was mimicked by the selective NK-1 receptor agonist which showed a similar concentration-dependent curve, while selective NK-2 and NK-3 receptor agonists were ineffective. Our conclusions are that endothelial cells possess specific receptors for SP of the NK-1 type which affect mobilization of capillary endothelial cells.
