Secretagogue-induced saliva of the tick, Amblyomma americanum (L.) was fractionated by reversed-phase-high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) and bioassayed in smooth muscle preparations. Material with retention times of authentic prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha) were found to cause contraction of preparations of rat… CONTINUE READING
