Resumo Background: We have shown that the portal hypertensive response to bradykinin in normal rats is mediated by B-2 receptors.Methods: By using isolated and exsanguinated rat liver perfusion, we studied the portal hypertensive response to bradykinin or des-Arg(9)-bradykinin (B-1 agonist) in inflamed or cirrhotic rat livers. Livers were perfused with bovine serum albumin Krebs-Henseleit buffer (pH 7.4; 37 degreesC) at a constant flow rate, in the absence or presence of des-Arg(9)[Leu(8)]-bradykinin or HOE 140 (B-1 and B-2 receptor antagonists, respectively). Bradykinin (140 nmol) or des-Arg(9)-bradykinin was injected as a bolus via the afferent route to the liver.Results: Basal perfusion pressure in liver-cirrhotic rats was higher than in normal rats. in normal, inflamed, or liver-cirrhotic rats, the presence of the B-1 antagonist did not change the portal hypertensive response to bradykinin, while the B-2 antagonist abolished this response. A 140-nmol dose of des-Arg(9)-bradykinin did not change the perfusion pressure; 700 nmol of this B-1 agonist produced an insignificant perfusion pressure increase. the perfusion pressure increase induced by bradykinin in cirrhotic livers was lower than in normal livers.Conclusions: the portal hypertensive response to bradykinin in inflamed or cirrhotic rat livers is mediated by B-2 receptors, but not B-1 receptors, and there is a contracting hyporeactivity to bradykinin in cirrhotic rat livers.
