The biochemical actions of phentolamine and papaverine on rat perfused skeletal muscle.


The direct actions of the vasodilators, papaverine and phentolamine, on skeletal muscle metabolism were investigated in an isolated perfusion system. Eviscerated male rats were hemisected above the diaphragm and perfused, via the aorta, with a physiological perfusion medium containing erythrocytes. Papaverine, but not phentolamine, reduced vascular… (More)
