  • Objectives To determine whether matrine, a kind of traditional Chinese medicinal alkaloid, can relax the aortic smooth muscles isolated from guinea pigs and to investigate the mechanism of its relaxant effects. Methods Phenylephrine or potassium chloride concentration-dependent relaxation response of aortic smooth muscles to matrine was studied in the precontracted guinea pigs. Results Matrine (lx104 mol/L-3.3x10-3mol/L) relaxed the endothelium-denuded aortic rings pre-contracted sub-maximally with phenylephrine, in a concentration-dependent manner, and its pre-incubation (3.3x10-3mol/L) produced a significant rightward shift in the phenylephrine dose-response curve, but had no effects on the potassium chloride-induced contraction. The anti-contractile effect of matrine was not reduced by the highly selective ATP-dependent K+ channel blocker glibenclamide (10-5mol/L), either by the non-selective K+channel blocker tetraethylammonium (103mol/L), or by theβ-antagonist propranolol (105 mol/L). In either "normal" or "Ca2+-free'' bathing medium, the phenylephrine-induced contraction was attenuated by matrine (3.3x103 mol/L), indicating that the vasorelaxation was due to inhibition of intracellular and extracellular Ca2+ mobilization. Conclusion Matrine inhibits phenylephrine-induced contractions by inhibiting activation of a-adrenoceptor and interfering with the release of intracellular Ca2+ and the influx of extracellular Ca2+.
