Nipradilol induces vasodilation of canine isolated posterior ciliary artery via stimulation of the guanylyl cyclase-cGMP pathway.

Abstract

We examined the effect of nipradilol on contraction of the posterior ciliary artery induced by high potassium or norepinephrine and on cyclic GMP (cGMP) levels in the posterior ciliary artery of dogs. Nipradilol caused dose-dependent relaxation of KCl-and norepinephrine-induced contractions of posterior ciliary artery. The relaxant effect of nipradilol on… (More)
