The effects of estrogen (E), progesterone (P) and estrogen plus progesterone (E+P) treatment on Ca-induced contraction in the KCL-depolarized uterine muscle, and the influences on the Ca2+ antagonism induced by reserpine and verapamil "in vitro" were studied. Uterine muscles from rats in estrus were taken as controls. Uteri from spayed untreated rats showed the same sensitivity to Ca2+ as those from estrus rats, but castration decreased maximal contractile tension to Ca2+ and Ca2+ threshold. P…
