Abstract

Effects of tacrolimus, a protein phosphatase 2B inhibitor, on the reflex plasticity between the pelvic afferent nerve fibers and the urethra were examined in urethane-anesthetized rats. Repetitive stimulation (1Hz) induced a potentiation (0.9±0.2 and 10.5±1.6 spikes in control and repetitive stimulation groups, respectively, P
