[Effects of ATP-regulated potassium channels modulators, N-(2-pyridyl)-N'-(4-toluol) sulfonylcarbamides, on electromechanical activity in guinea pig myocardium].


The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of 2-aminopyridine (2-AP) and its new sulfonylcarbamide derivatives AP21, AP22, AP26, and AP27 (10(-(5))-10(-(3)) M) on pinacidil (5x10(-(5)) M), an activator of K(ATP) channels, induced shortening of action potential duration and reduction of contraction force in guinea pig papillary muscles.
