UDP-glucose effect on phrenic diaphragm preparation of the rat.


The effects of uridine-5'-diphosphoglucose (UDPG) on the contractile response of the phrenic nerve-diaphragm preparation and on carbohydrate metabolism in the diaphragmatic muscle were studied in the rat. In the preparations obtained form rats, the contracturant action of UDPG, previously observed in guinea-pig preparations, was thus confirmed. This action… (More)
