It has been proposed that hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) is mediated via K+ channel inhibition and Ca2+ influx through voltage-gated channels. HPV depends strongly on the degree of preconstriction, and we therefore examined the effect of Ca2+ channel blockade on tension and intracellular [Ca2+] ([Ca2+]i) during HPV in rat intrapulmonary arteries(More)
