Effect of synthetic oxytocin on two regional circulations of the rat
KU Ansari, SS Mishra, V Chandra
The action of oxytocin has been investigated on the perfused blood vessels of rat hind-limb and rat mesentary. The vaso-constrictor action of oxytocin on these two isolated preparations remained unaffected by alpha and beta adrenergic receptor blocking drugs and antihistamines. Tissues obtained from rats, either reserpinized or primed with oestrogen. exhibited more pronounced constrictor action on the two preparations. The probable mode of constrictor action of oxytocin is discussed.
