Plasma protein extravasation has been measured in guinea pig skin using 125I-albumin and blood flow using 133Xenon (133Xe) clearance. The nitric oxide (NO) synthase inhibitors N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), N(G)-monomethyl-L-arginine (l-NMMA) and N(G)-nitro-L-arginine (L-NOArg) and the alpha-adrenoceptor agonist, phenylephrine, inhibited bradykinin induced plasma protein extravasation when co-injected with the peptide. The inhibitory effects of L-NAME and L-NOArg lasted for up to 8 and 4 h, respectively, whereas phenylephrine and L-NMMA had no persistent inhibitory effects. When co-injected with 133Xe, L-NAME, L-NMMA, L-NOArg and phenylephrine, but not D-NAME, produced significant reductions in skin blood flow. When injected prior to 133Xe, L-NAME and L-NOArg, but not phenylephrine or L-NMMA, significantly reduced flow. The effect of L-NAME on flow was not significant at 8 h. Thus, although the inhibitory effects of the NO synthase inhibitors on mediator induced plasma protein extravasation show correlations with their effects on blood flow, the persistent effect of L-NAME on exudation appears to extend beyond its effect on flow.
