[The influence of activation of the ATP-sensitive potassium channels by flocalin on the function of the cardiovascular system].

PMID 23713345


In experiments on the anaesthetized dogs the influence of a new fluorine-containing opener of ATP-sensitive potassium (K(ATP)) channels flocalin on the cardiohemodynamic of great animals in vivo was studied. Flocalin introduced intravenously in doses 0.01 - 1.5 mgs/kg. It is shown that it reduces in dose-dependent manner a system arterial pressure, perfusion pressure in coronary artery and general peripheral resistance of vessels with maximal effects on 56.8 +/- 2.7, 22.4 +/- 4.7 and 47.2% +/- 6.5% accordingly at most dose 1.5 mgs/kg. Flocalin causes development of cardiodepressive reactions in heart, that is exhibited in dose-dependent the decrease of pressure in the left ventricle, speed of growth (dP/dt(max)) and reduction (dP/dt(min)) in it's of pressure with maximal effects on 37.1 +/- 5.1, 51.2 +/- 9.4 and 55.6% +/- 6.9% accordingly at introduction of most dose of flocalin. Diminish of the cardiac out put and heart rate with a maximal effects on 23.1% +/-12.7% and 19.2% +/- 1.7% accordingly at a dose 1.0 mgs/kg was shown. It should be noted that considerable reduction of heart rate and general peripheral resistance of vessels takes place only at the large doses of flocalin - 1 and 1.5 mgs/kg. Thus, it is shown that activation of K(ATP) channels by flocalin causes the dose-dependent decrease of pressure in the system of circulation of blood and contraction activity of myocardium.
