The present study was undertaken to investigate the involvement of kinins in the cardiovascular- and respiratory effects of LQQ venom. Blood pressure, heart rate, electrocardiogram (ECG) and respiration were studied in anaesthetised rabbits, in the presence and absence of aprotinin and icatibant, a B2 bradykinin antagonist. Plasma bradykinin concentrations were also measured following venom injection. LQQ venom caused a triphasic effect on blood pressure comprising an immediate fall, a… CONTINUE READING
