Abstract

Arrythmogenic effects of endothelin-1 were studied in NMRI mice under conditions of NO-synthase blockade with N omega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester. Intravenous injection of endothelin-1 increased heart rate variability in awake mice. NO-synthase blockade potentiated the arrythmogenic effects of endothelin-1. In narcotized animals the arrythmogenic effect of endothelin-1 was not observed and was considerably weakened under conditions of NO-synthase blockade. Arrhythmia was paralleled by atrioventricular block and lengthening of the ST segment.
