Pulmonary oedema producing toxin from Mesobuthus tamulus venom augments cardio-respiratory reflexes through B2 kinin receptors.


The current study was undertaken to compare the effects of pulmonary oedema producing toxin (PO-Tx) isolated from Mesobuthus tamulus venom on cardio-respiratory reflexes with exogenously administered bradykinin (BK) and to delineate the type of BK receptors mediating these responses. Jugular venous injection of phenyldiguanide (PDG) in anaesthetized rats… (More)
