Influence of the formamidine pesticide amitraz and its metabolites on porcine myometrial contractility: involvement of alpha 2-adrenoceptors and Ca2+ channels.

Abstract

Isolated uterine strips were used to study the effects of amitraz and its metabolites on porcine myometrial contractility during the luteal phase of the estrous cycle. Amitraz and its active metabolite BTS27271 (10(-8)-10(-5) M) caused a dose-dependent increase in myometrial contractility in the luteal phase strips, and BTS27271 was more efficacious than… (More)
