The flavonoid quercetin is metabolized into isorhamnetin, tamarixetin, and kaempferol, the vascular effects of which are unknown. In the present study, the effects of quercetin and its metabolites were analyzed on isometric tension in isolated rat thoracic and abdominal aorta, in isolated intact and beta-escin-permeabilized iliac arteries, and on perfusion(More)
The maturation in the vasodilator response to nitric oxide (NO) in isolated intrapulmonary arteries was analyzed in newborns and 15- to 20-day-old piglets. The vasodilator responses to NO gas but not to the NO donor sodium nitroprusside increased with age. The inhibitory effects of the superoxide dismutase inhibitor diethyldithiocarbamate and xanthine(More)
We have studied the effects of the class Ic antiarrhythmic propafenone on K+ currents in freshly isolated smooth muscle cells from rat portal veins and on the spontaneous contractions in whole tissues. Under Ca2+-free conditions, when cells were clamped at -80 mV (whole-cell configuration) depolarizing steps from -80 to +50 mV induced a family of K+(More)
