A Ca(2+) channel blocker-like effect of dehydrocurdione on rodent intestinal and vascular smooth muscle.

Abstract

Effects of dehydrocurdione, a zedoary-derived sesquiterpene, on smooth muscle were investigated by recording the mechanical activity of intestines and aorta from guinea pigs and rats. Dehydrocurdione (0.1-3 mM) induced a sustained relaxation of rat duodenum and inhibited spontaneous motility. Dehydrocurdione (0.1-1 mM) inhibited the contractile response of… (More)
