Studies on the relative contribution of β 1- and β 2-adrenoceptors (AR) generally employ selective β 1- and β 2-AR antagonists such as CGP 20712A and ICI 118,551, respectively, and assume that antagonism by one of these compounds indicates mediation by the respective AR subtype. Here, we evaluated the β 2-AR-selectivity of ICI 118,551 in ventricular muscle(More)
Systemic inflammation may contribute to heart failure. PGE2 was recently suggested to mediate inflammation-induced impairment of cardiac function by desensitizing the murine heart to isoprenaline. Given the magnitude of the reported effect and the potential relevance, we sought to reproduce it in the human heart. Human trabeculae were prepared from the(More)
