The aqueous extract of the Panax ginseng (GE) potentiated the relaxation induced by transmural electrical stimulation or nicotine in monkey cerebral arterial strips denuded of the endothelium and partially contracted with prostaglandin F(2 alpha). The response to electrical stimulation was abolished by tetrodotoxin, whereas that to nicotine was suppressed by hexamethonium. N(G)-nitro-L-arginine abolished both of the neurogenic relaxation. Atropine did not alter the potentiating effect of GE… Expand
