    Voltage-gated potassium (Kv) channels formed by Kv7 (KCNQ) α-subunits are recognized as crucial for vascular smooth muscle function, in addition to their established roles in the heart (Kv7.1) and the brain (Kv7.2-5). In vivo, Kv7 α-subunits are often regulated by KCNE subfamily ancillary...

    Objective: Active control of the arterial diameter by vascular smooth muscle is one of the principle mechanisms by which vessels adapt to a significant rise in blood pressure after birth. Although voltage-gated K+ (Kv) channels play an important role in the regulation of...

    Investigates the effect of extracellular hydrogen-ion concentration (pH) on intracellular pH in arterioles and skeletal muscle. Variation on the pH of arterioles; Observation on the V[sub max] and K[sub m] of H[sup +] transport; Hill coefficient for H[sup +] transport.

    Background: Leptin induces relaxation of vascular smooth muscle through an endothelium-dependent release of nitric oxide (EDNO) and administration of a high-salt diet reduces the relaxation of vessels to EDNO. We would, therefore, predict that salt loading would reduce the leptin-induced...

  • HCO3-Dependent Impact of Na+,K+,2Cl- Cotransport in Vascular Smooth Muscle Excitation-Contraction Coupling. Koltsova, Svetlana V.; Luneva, Oksana G.; Lavoie, Julie L.; Tremblay, Johanne; Maksimov, Georgy V.; Hamet, Pavel; Orlov, Sergei N. // Cellular Physiology & Biochemistry (Karger AG);2009, Vol. 23 Issue 4-6, p407 

    In smooth muscles, inhibition of Na+,K+,2Cl- cotransport (NKCC) by bumetanide decreased intracellular Cl- content ([Cl-]i) and suppressed the contractions triggered by diverse stimuli. This study examines whether or not bicarbonate, a regulator of several Cl- transporters, affects the impact of...

  • Differential Regulation and Recovery of Intracellular Ca2+ in Cerebral and Small Mesenteric Arterial Smooth Muscle Cells of Simulated Microgravity Rat. Jun-Hui Xue; Lian-Hong Chen; Hua-Zhou Zhao; Yong-Dong Pu; Han-Zhong Feng; Yu-Guang Ma; Jin Ma; Yao-Ming Chang; Zuo-Ming Zhang; Man-Jiang Xie // PLoS ONE;2011, Vol. 6 Issue 5, p1 

    Background: The differential adaptations of cerebrovasculature and small mesenteric arteries could be one of critical factors in postspaceflight orthostatic intolerance, but the cellular mechanisms remain unknown. We hypothesize that there is a differential regulation of intracellular Ca2+...

  • Comparison of Ca2+ Handling for the Regulation of Vasoconstriction between Rat Coronary and Renal Arteries. Liu, Lin; Huang, Xin-Wen; Yang, Hui; Kuang, Su-Juan; Lian, Fei-Hong; Zhang, Meng-Zhen; Rao, Fang; Shan, Zhi-Xin; Lin, Qiu-Xiong; Yang, Min; Lin, Ji-Jin; Jiang, Sui; Zhou, Zhi-Ling; Deng, Chun-Yu // Journal of Vascular Research;2019, Vol. 56 Issue 4, p191 

    Background: Ca2+ plays an important role in the regulation of vasoconstriction. Ca2+ signaling is regulated by a number of Ca2+-handling proteins. However, whether differences in Ca2+ handling affect the regulation of vasoconstriction in different arteries remains elusive. Objective: To...

    We tested the hypothesis that an elevated potassium-42 ([sup 42] K[sup +] ) efflux (highly dependent on Ca[sup 2+] ) and an increase in the sensitivity of contraction and [sup 42] K[sup +] efflux to norepinephrine (NE) in conduit arteries of aldosterone-salt hypertensive rats (AHR) exended to...

    Background/Aims: The roles of intercellular communication and T-type versus L-type voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels (VDCCs) in conducted vasoconstriction to local KCl-induced depolarization were investigated in mesenteric arterioles. Methods: Ratiometric Ca2+ imaging (R) using Fura-PE3 with...
