A study of the effects of glucagons on some isolated arterial segments
S Kishore, AL Sharma, RB Verma, DN Pandy, SS Mishra
The effect of glucagon on various isolated arterial preparations has been studied. It has been shown to dilate superior mesenteric artery of rats, to constrict ear vessels of rabbits and umbilical arteries of man and to have no effect on femoral artery of rats. These effects of glucagon were not blocked by pretreating the preparation with adrenergic, cholinergic and serotonergic blockers. It is suggested that glucagon may have a direct musculotropic action.
