Abstract

Rats were treated with a single dose of isoproterenol (25 mg/kg s.c.) and the levels of polyamines determined in various parts (right ventricle, basis, medial part and apex of the left ventricle) of the heart 24, 48 and 72 hours after the injection. The isoproterenol treatment produced marked alterations in the concentrations of cardiac polyamines. The most apparent changes were seen in the apex and medial part of the left ventricle where spermidine concentration exhibited a biphasic response with peaks at 24 and 72 hours. In the basis of the heart the spermidine concentration was significantly elevated only at 24 hours. In the right ventricle the spermidine level was significantly higher than control at 72 hours. Spermidine/spermine ratio was augmented in all cardiac tissues examined over the 72-hour period. Results appear to show that the isoproterenol-induced alterations in cardiac polyamine metabolism were not uniformly distributed in the various regions of the heart.
