Characterization by cyproheptadine of the dopamine-induced contraction in canine isolated arteries.


Spirally cut strips of isolated canine femoral and carotid arteries were used to characterize the vasoconstrictor effect of dopamine. A serotonin antagonist, cyproheptadine, 10- minus 7, 3 X 10- minus 7 and 10-minus 6 M, inhibited dopamine (pA2 = 7.46 plus or minus 0.11), tryptamine (pA2 = 7.38 plus or minus 0.09) and serotonin-induced contractions (pA2 = 7… (More)
