This study aims at elucidating the mechanism of action of extracellular fructose-1 ,6-diphosphate (FDP). FDP is able to inhibit Ca++ entry into the myocardial tissue with an IC50 value of 11·5 mM and in addition, it is bound by rat heart slices, the binding being activated by Zn and conditions of chemical hypoxia induced by KCN and iodoacetate. The overall effect of extracellular FDP includes an increase of frequency and amplitude of contraction of perfused heart at concentration below l mM, and, in generai, a stimulation of the oxygen consumption of the tissue. The antihaemolytic effect of FDP suggests its action as a membrane stabilizer. The effects of extracellular FDP on the myocardial celi can be interpreted both on the basis of a limited permeability of the celi membrane to it and as a purely extracellular effect transduced through the celi membrane with a final response consisting of an increase in the intracellular FDP

Abstract

This study aims at elucidating the mechanism of action of extracellular fructose-1 ,6-diphosphate (FDP). FDP is able to inhibit Ca++ entry into the myocardial tissue with an IC50 value of 11·5 mM and in addition, it is bound by rat heart slices, the binding being activated by Zn and conditions of chemical hypoxia induced by KCN and iodoacetate. The overall effect of extracellular FDP includes an increase of frequency and amplitude of contraction of perfused heart at concentration below l mM, and, in generai, a stimulation of the oxygen consumption of the tissue. The antihaemolytic effect of FDP suggests its action as a membrane stabilizer. The effects of extracellular FDP on the myocardial celi can be interpreted both on the basis of a limited permeability of the celi membrane to it and as a purely extracellular effect transduced through the celi membrane with a final response consisting of an increase in the intracellular FDP
