Abstract: 1. PG E2 (2.10(-8) g/ml) produces a positive inotropic effect and lengthens the duration of the action potential at the level of 50% and 90% of repolarization. 2. PG F2 alpha acts negatively inotropic and shortens the action potential at the level of 75% and 90% of repolarization. 3. PG F2 alpha (2.10(-8) g/ml) increases both the electrotropic and inotropic vagal effects, PG E2 (2.10(-8) g/ml) decreases them. 4. PG E2 improves the electromechanical coupling, PG F2 alpha reduces it.
