Formation of heteromeric gap junction channels by connexins 40 and 43 in vascular smooth muscle cells.
Connexin (Cx) 43 and Cx40 are coexpressed in several tissues, including cardiac atrial and ventricular myocytes and vascular smooth muscle. It has been shown that these Cxs form homomeric/homotypicExpand

Mechanism and selectivity of the effects of halothane on gap junction channel function.
Volatile anesthetics alter tissue excitability by decreasing the extent of gap junction-mediated cell-cell coupling and by altering the activity of the channels that underlie the action potential. InExpand

A Novel Mesh Electrode Catheter for Mapping and Radiofrequency Delivery at the Left Atrium‐Pulmonary Vein Junction: A Single‐Catheter Approach to Pulmonary Vein Antrum Isolation
Background: Electrical isolation of pulmonary veins (PV) by radiofrequency (RF) ablation is often performed in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Current catheter technology usually requires theExpand

Simultaneous multipolar radiofrequency ablation in the monopolar mode increases lesion size.
Delivery of radiofrequency (RF) energy from the distal tip of electrophysiology catheters produces lesions that may be too small to ablate arrhythmogenic sites during a single application of RFExpand
