1. FK336 (10(-6)-10(-4) M) inhibited contractile responses to norepinephrine (NE), KCl and Ca2+ in isolated rabbit aortas. 2. Relaxing effect of FK336 on KCl-response was inhibited by nitroglycerin (NG), but not by nifedipine or verapamil. 3. FK336 inhibited residual NE response and a subsequent Ca2+ response in Ca(2+)-free medium. FK336 did not affect the inositol monophosphate level. 4. Relaxing effect of FK336 on NE response was inhibited by methylene blue, NG, K(+)-channel inhibitors and acetylcholine (ACh), and potentiated by M&B 22,948 and theophylline. 8-Br cGMP and dibutyl cAMP had no effect. 5. FK336 increased cGMP level in rat aorta. 6. Potentiation of isoproterenol-relaxation by FK336 was inhibited by methylene blue. 7. The inhibitory effect of ACh on FK336-relaxation was eliminated by endothelium removal, nordihydroquaiaretic acid and guinacrine, but not by indomethacin. These treatments themselves did not affect FK336-relaxation. 8. The mode of vasorelaxing action of FK336 is discussed.
