Activation of protease-activated receptor (PAR)-2 has been proposed to be protective in myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, an effect possibly related to an action on the coronary vasculature. Therefore, we investigated the effects of PAR2 activation on coronary tone in isolated perfused rat hearts and elucidated the mechanisms of any observed effects. Although having a negligible effect on ventricular contractility, the PAR2 activating peptide SLIGRL produced an endothelium-dependent… CONTINUE READING
