[Studies of the effect of 2,3-dioxoindolin (isatin) in comparison with serotonin on the isolated guinea pig ileum].

In preparations of the isolated guinea-pig ileum 2,3-dioxoindoline shows a dose-dependent stimulating activity. In a contraction range between 5 x 10(-5) to 2 x 10(-3) moles/l this compound is spasmogenic and causes concentration (pD2 = 3.3). Prolonged contact time of higher concentrations of isatin results in a reduction of excitation and a relaxation of… CONTINUE READING
