The effects mediated by the naturally occurring phenylethanoid glycoside verbascoside (1 mM) in isolated rat hearts (significant increases in heart rate (42%), contractile force (13%) and coronary perfusion rate (113%)) all coincided with a marked increase in intracellular levels of cyclic-3',5'-adenosine monophosphate (1733% increase).
