The selective "5-HT1-like" receptor agonist 5-carboxamidotryptamine (5-CT, 0.2-1.6 micrograms/kg bolus i.v.), serotonin (5-HT, 3-10 micrograms/kg), and phenylbiguanide (10-40 micrograms/kg) all elicited the "Bezold-Jarisch-like" bradycardia reflex in conscious rabbits. This reflex was antagonised by the 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, MDL 72222. After autonomic blockade (mecamylamine), 5-CT and 5-HT infusion (i.v.) caused renal artery spasm (Doppler flowmeter) that was antagonised by ketanserin, a 5… CONTINUE READING
