Effect of sympathetic denervation on the relaxing responses of rabbit arterial smooth muscle.


1. The present study reports on the influence of chemical denervation by 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) on the relaxing responses to carbachol, sodium nitroprusside, zaprinast, adenosine, forskolin and 3-isobutyl-1-methylxanthine (IBMX) of ring preparations of rabbit renal and femoral arteries. 2. Carbachol was found to induce a complete abolition of the tone… (More)
