Genetic Deficit of SK3 and IK1 Channels Disrupts the Endothelium-Derived Hyperpolarizing Factor Vasodilator Pathway and Causes Hypertension
Background— It has been proposed that activation of endothelial SK3 (KCa2.3) and IK1 (KCa3.1) K+ channels plays a role in the arteriolar dilation attributed to an endothelium-derived hyperpolarizingExpand

Endothelial Ca2+‐activated K+ channels in normal and impaired EDHF–dilator responses – relevance to cardiovascular pathologies and drug discovery
The arterial endothelium critically contributes to blood pressure control by releasing vasodilating autacoids such as nitric oxide, prostacyclin and a third factor or pathway termedExpand
