Cardiac glycosides: relationship among active 86Rb uptake, (Na+,K+)-ATPase activity, and inotropy in guinea pig heart.


Relationships among positive inotropic responses, (Na+,K+)-ATPase inhibition, and sodium pump activities were studied using paced Langendorff preparations of guinea pig heart. (Na+,K+)-ATPase activity was estimated from the initial velocity of [3H] ouabain binding in ventricular homogenates, and sodium pump activity from ouabain-sensitive 86Rb uptake of… (More)
