The type of antagonism between verapamil, nifedipine or prenylamine and calcium or isoproterenol on myocardial contractility, was investigated in cat papillary muscles. Dose response curves to calcium or to isoproterenol were performed in the absence and presence of a single dose of either verapamil, nifedipine or prenylamine. Non significantly different maximum values of tension (T) and maximal rate of rise of tension (+dT/dtmax) were obtained at the "plateau" of the dose responses curves to… Expand
