Contractile response, membrane activity, and fluorescence signal from mag-fura-2 were measured on the longitudinal myometrium taken from estrogen-treated rat, and the influence of Mg and Mn ions on the inhibitory effects caused by db cAMP, 8-bromo cGMP, and db cGMP was investigated. Taking the Kd value of mag-fura-2 with Mg to be 2.0 mM, the intracellular Mg concentration was estimated to be 380μM in the tissue incubated with Mg-free Krebs solution and 420μM in the tissue exposed to Ca-free 40 mM K solution containing 15 mM Mg for 5min, respectively. The phasic contractions generated by electrical stimulation in Mg-free Krebs solution were more strongly depressed by 30μM db cAMP, 10μM 8-bromo cGMP, and 1 mM db cGMP after the Mg loading treatment. The muscle was exposed to Ca-free 40 mM K solution containing 0.6mM Mn for lOmin, and it was assumed that the muscle was loaded with Mn ions. After the Mn loading treatment, the contractile depression caused by 8-bromo cGMP and db cGMP was enhanced, whereas that by db cAMP was attenuated. These results were discussed in relation to the influence of intracellular load with Mg or Mn on the inhibitory actions caused by isoprenaline, forskolin, and relaxin.
