|Title:||Alpha-adrenergic receptor blocking effect of <i style="">Cleistanthus collinus </i>(Roxb.) Benth. and Hook f. leaf extract on guinea pig isolated smooth muscle preparations|
|Authors:||Kumar, M Ravindra|
<i style="">Cleistanthus collinus</i>
|Abstract:||Aqueous extract of <i style="">C. collinus</i> leaves inhibited norepinephrine induced contraction in guinea pig vas deferens and aortic strip in a dose-dependent manner. Inhibition of acetylcholine induced contraction in ileum was dose independent. <i style="">C. collinus</i> extract <i style="">per se</i> had no effect on isolated guinea pig vas deferens and aortic strip, but inhibited norepinephrine induced contraction in a dose-dependent manner probably by its antagonist action on α-adrenergic receptor. It had inconsistent effect on guinea pig ileum <i style="">in vitro</i> preparation.|
