Experiments were designed to investigate generation of automaticity of isolated human renal arteries induced by administration of potassium in vitro. Helical strips of human renal arteries showed marked oscillations in the potassium-induced contractions which persisted for 2 hr. Indomethacin and aspirin dose-dependently inhibited these oscillations. Tranylcypromine and mepacrine also had an inhibitory action on the oscillations of the strips induced by potassium. In the strips which reached a…

POSSIBLE INFLUENCE OF INTRARENAL GENERATION OF KININS ON PROSTAGLANDIN RELEASE FROM THE RABBIT PERFUSED KIDNEY
TLDR
It is suggested that augmented release of prostaglandins in response to kininogen is a consequence of renal generation of kinins, and changes in the intrarenal activity of the kallikreinkinin system may modulate renal prostaglandsin release.
Prostaglandin Synthesis by Bovine Mesenteric Arteries and Veins
TLDR
Under control conditions in both arteries and veins, synthesis of PGE2 exceeded that of PGF2α twofold, and Bradykinin selectively increased the synthesis of a PGE-like substance in arteries and of aPGF- like substance in veins.
THE DISTRIBUTION AND METABOLISM OF ARACHIDONIC ACID IN RABBIT PLATELETS DURING AGGREGATION AND ITS MODIFICATION BY DRUGS
1Gas chromatographic and radio‐isotope labelling techniques have been used to establish the origin of the arachidonic acid used by the platelet cyclo‐oxygenase for the synthesis of pro‐aggregatory

TLDR
The participation of prostag landins in complex biological events may be investigated with the aid of substrate analogues or with pharmacological agents which block prostaglandin biosynthesis both in vitro and in vivo.
