Notes

Abstract: A number of skeletal muscles play an important role in regulating lymph flux in frogs and toads by changing the compliance of lymph sacs moving lymph toward the lymph hearts. The lymph hearts pump lymph into the circulatory system to maintain blood pressure and blood volume. Because lymph mobilization in anurans is dependent upon blood volume/ pressure status, we hypothesized that lymph muscles, like cardiac and lymph heart effectors, are also regulated by the baroreflex. We tested this hypothesis by measuring muscle activity with electromyography while increasing mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) with phenylephrine (Phe; 0.02-1.0 mg/kg, i.v.) and decreasing MAP with sodium nitroprusside (SNP; 0.02-1.0 mg/kg, i.v.). Decreasing MAP with SNP resulted in a 275% increase in lymph muscle contraction frequency while increasing MAP and Phe had no effect on muscle burst frequency. These results suggest that lymph muscles are regulated by MAP and are effectors of the baroreflex. Supported by NSF-IOS 0843082.
