The effects of synthetic bradykinin and eledoisin on the peripheral circulation were studied in hind limbs of anesthetized dogs. It was found that the intraarterial injection of either peptide caused marked decreases in the femoral arterial perfusion pressure and the femoral arterial peripheral resistance, whereas these peptides increased the femoral venous outflow, even when the femoral arterial inflow was kept constant and systemic arterial pressure remained essentially unchanged. The present observation indicates that bradykinin and eledoisin dilate both arterioles and arteroveous communication vessels in canine hind limbs.

    The impact of cardiopulmonary fitness (VO(2max)) on the age-related decline in skin-microvessel vasodilator function has not been fully established and the inter-relationships among different measures of microvascular vasodilator function are unknown. We used laser Doppler flowmetry to assess...

    Forearm–fingertip skin temperature differentials (Tsk-diff) are used to indicate vasomotor tone, vasoconstriction defined as having occurred when Tsk-diff≥4°C (Sessler et al. 1987, 1988a, b). This study was conducted to determine whether Tsk-diff or finger pad heat flux (HF) can...

    The cutaneous venoarteriolar response (CVAR) is a local non-adrenergic vasoconstrictor reflex that is engaged via increases in local transmural pressure. The purpose of this study was to determine if local temperature alters the vasoconstrictor ability of the CVAR. Twelve (5 male, 7 female)...

    It has been demonstrated that, in most arteriopathic patients, vasodilators induce the vascular steal phenomenon, i.e. the shunting of blood from the ischemic to the normally perfused areas. It is conceivable, therefore, that vasoconstrictors may improve in the opposite way, reducing the blood...

    In this study the influence of bradykinin on airway responses was investigated in anaesthetised and ventilated mice. Airway resistance in mice was monitored using whole body plethysmography. Intravenous (i.v.) administration of bradykinin (4–40 µg/kg) did not cause a direct effect on...

    Kinins are vasoactive peptides released from precursors called kininogens, and serum levels of both T- and K-kininogens increase dramatically as rats age. Kinin release is tightly regulated, and here we show that serum kinin levels also increase with age, from 63 ± 16 nmol/L in young Fisher...
