The inotropic effect of 4-aminopyridine and pH changes in rabbit papillary muscle.


The effects of 4-aminopyridine (4AP), and pH changes have been examined on tension responses and cyclic nucleotide levels in rabbit isolated right ventricular papillary muscles. 4AP augmented papillary muscle contractions in a concentration-dependent manner. However, this positive inotropic action was largely due to an increase in extracellular pH produced… (More)
