The present study examined the responses of isolated pig hepatic lymph vessels to vasoactive substances, the classification of alpha adrenoceptors and the mode of action of acetylcholine (ACh) with special reference to the lymphatic endothelial cells. Contractions of the hepatic lymph vessels were induced by norepinephrine (NE), epinephrine, prostaglandin F2 alpha, histamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine in a dose-dependent manner. NE was the most potent vasoconstrictor agent. 5-bromo-6[2-imidazolin… Expand
Effects of endothelin on spontaneous contractions in lymph vessels.
TLDR
Results suggest that stimulation of ET(A) receptors on the lymphatic smooth muscles causes a positive chronotropic effect on the spontaneous contractions, and stimulation ofET(B) receptor on theymphatic endothelial cells induces a release of nitric oxide, which results in the chronotropic and inotropic effects on spontaneouscontractions in isolated bovine mesenteric lymphatics.

Regulation of the vasomotor activity of lymph microvessels by nitric oxide and prostaglandins.
TLDR
It is concluded that endothelial nitric oxide and prostaglandins are important modulators of lymphatic vasomotion, hence pumping activity of lymph microvessels in vivo. Expand

Effects of histamine on the contractile and electrical activity in isolated lymphatic vessels of the guinea‐pig mesentery
TLDR
The present results suggest a direct action of histamine on the lymphatic smooth muscle via stimulation of H1 (and in some vessels H2) receptors, the dominant effect being an increased contractile activity. Expand
Effect of Histamine on Contractile Activity of Smooth Muscles in Bovine Mesenteric Lymph Nodes
TLDR
The effects of histamine and mechanisms of its action on the capsular smooth muscle cells of mesenteric lymph nodes were examined on isolated capsular strips under isometric conditions and were realized via direct stimulation of H1- and H2-receptors on the membrane of smoother muscle cells. Expand
Electrical stimulation-induced α1- and α2-adrenoceptors-mediated contractions of isolated canine lymph nodes
Abstract The contractile effects of α-adrenoceptor agonists and field electrical stimulation were investigated pharmacologically in canine isolated tracheobronchial lymph nodes. Addition ofExpand
ATP inhibits pump activity of lymph vessels via adenosine A1 receptor-mediated involvement of NO- and ATP-sensitive K+ channels.
TLDR
It is suggested that ATP-induced dilation and inhibition of pump activity of isolated rat lymph vessels are endothelium-dependent and -independent responses. Expand
Parathyroid hormone-related protein-(1-34) inhibits intrinsic pump activity of isolated murine lymph vessels.
TLDR
It is suggested that production and release of endogenous nitric oxide and activation of ATP-sensitive K(+) channels in the lymph vessels contribute to the PTHrP-(1-34)-mediated inhibitory responses of the lymphatic pump activity. Expand
A Distinct Role of the Autonomic Nervous System in Modulating the Function of Lymphatic Vessels under Physiological and Tumor-Draining Conditions
TLDR
Tumor-draining LVs were expanded and showed a higher innervation density and contractility that was reduced by treatment with atropine, phentolamine, and, most potently, isoproterenol, which likely have clinical implications given the impact of lymphatic fluid drainage on intratumoral fluid pressure and thus drug delivery.
