The mode of action of ergometrine in the isolated dog coronary artery


, : The mode of action of ergometrine in the isolated dog coronary artery. European Journal of Pharmacology 64(2-3): 157-160

Coronary vasoconstrictor responses to ergometrine were examined in spiral coronary arterial preparations of dogs. Ergometrine or serotonin (5-HT) produced dose-dependent contractions of the strips. Methysergide significantly depressed the contractions induced by ergometrine or 5-HT. Dihydroergotamine and phentolamine depressed constrictor responses to ergometrine, while phenoxybenzamine did not. The 5-HT antagonistic action of phentolamine was stronger than that of phenoxybenzamine. Ergometrine may act on coronary arteries mainly through activation of 5-HT receptors.

Amlodipine inhibited contractions of rat aortic rings induced by 40 mM KCl (IC50 = 7.5 x 10(-9) M). The time to attain the maximum inhibitory effect of KCl-induced contractions was long (hours) and dependent on the concentration of amlodipine. Aft...
