DSE produced two successive hypotensive actions: the first one via cholinergic receptor stimulation, while the second one potentiated by blockades of autonomic ganglion and alpha-adrenoceptor. In contrast to DSE, CCE produced only one hypotensive response which was mediated through histaminergic activity. Furthermore, both extracts… CONTINUE READING
