Mechanisms of the effects of nicorandil in the isolated rat heart during ischemia and reperfusion: a 31P-nuclear magnetic resonance study.


Nicorandil (SG75) is a potent K+-channel activator with an additional nitro moiety. In the present study we investigated the potential mechanisms (K+-channel activation and nitric oxide [NO] release) for the effects of nicorandil on isolated perfused rat hearts during total global ischemia using 31P-nuclear magnetic resonance. After a 10-min control… (More)
