Decrease in muscle tension and reduced pyridine nucleotides of the guinea pig ileal longitudinal smooth muscle in high K+,Na(+)-deficient solution.

Abstract

In the present experiment, we studied the inhibitory mechanism of Na+ depletion on high K(+)-induced contraction by simultaneously measuring reduced pyridine nucleotides (PNred) or oxidized flavoproteins (FPox) fluorescence and contractile tension of the guinea pig ileal longitudinal muscle. Tension, PNred and FPox were all reversibly increased by the… (More)
