Abstract: 5-Cyclopropyl-2-[1-(2-fluoro-benzyl)-1H-pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridin-3-yl]-pyrimidin-4-ylamine (BAY 41-2272) is a potent soluble guanylyl cyclase stimulator in a nitric oxide (NO)-independent manner. The relaxant effect of BAY 41-2272 was investigated in rabbit and human corpus cavernosum in vitro. BAY 41-2272 (0.01 - 10 muM) relaxed both rabbit (pEC(50) = 6.82 +/- 0.06) and human (pEC(50) = 6.12 +/- 0.10) precontracted cavemosal strips. The guanylyl cyclase inhibitor (ODQ, 10 muM) caused significant rightward shifts in the concentration-response curves for BAY 41-2272 in rabbit (4.7-fold) and human (2.3-fold) tissues. The NO synthesis inhibitor (N-nitro-(L)-arginine methyl ester ((L)-NAME), 100 muM) also produced similar rightward shifts, revealing that BAY 41-2272 acts synergistically with endogenous NO to elicit its relaxant effect. The results also indicate that ODQ is selective for the NO-stimulated enzyme, since relaxations evoked by BAY 4 1 2272 were only partly attenuated by ODQ. The present study shows that both BAY 41-2272 and sildenafil evoke relaxations independent of inhibition of haem in soluble guanylate cyclase. Moreover, there is no synergistic effect of the two compounds in corpus cavernosum. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
