Since the cardiovascular effects of cholecystokinin (CCK) seem to particularly involve the A ('peripheral') subtype of CCK (CCK[A]) receptor, we examined the actions of two novel, highly selective CCK(A) receptor antagonists, PD140548 (N-alpha-methyl-N[(tricyclo[,7)]dec-2-yloxy)carbony l]-L-tryptophyl]-D-3-(phenylmethyl)-beta-alanine) and SR 27897B (1-[[2-(4-(2-chlorophenyl)thiazol-2-yl)aminocarbonyl]acetic acid) on CCK-induced alterations in blood pressure and heart rate, and on the baroreceptor reflex in the conscious, instrumented rat. CCK (2 microg, i.v.) produced a pressor response and biphasic effects on heart rate involving an initial bradycardia followed by a pronounced tach..
