Effects of cuscuta stem extract on various animal tissues
HP Kayath, NK Goel
The effects of cuscuta stem extract (CSE) were studied and compared with the effects of acetylcholine (ACh) on isolated piece of rabbit ileum, rectus abdominis muscle of frog and frog heart "in situ". The effects induced by CSE resembled those induced by ACh. These effects on isolated piece of rabbit ileum and frog heart were blocked competitively by atropine. Effect of CSE on isolated rectus abdominis muscle of frog was blocked by pancuronium and potentiated by neostigmine.
