PURPOSE Respiratory motion introduces uncertainties in tumor location and lung deformation, which often results in difficulties calculating dose distributions in thoracic radiation therapy. Deformable image registration (DIR) has ability to describe respiratory-induced lung deformation, with which the radiotherapy techniques can deliver high dose to tumors(More)
AIM To study the effects and mechanisms by which hyposmotic challenge modulate function of L-type calcium current (I(Ca,L)) in rat ventricular myocytes. METHODS The whole-cell patch-clamp techniques were used to record I(Ca,L) in rat ventricular myocytes. RESULTS Hyposmotic challenge(∼220 mosmol/L) induced biphasic changes of I(Ca,L), a transient(More)
AIM To investigate the muscarinic regulation of L-type calcium current (I(Ca-L)) during development. METHODS The whole cell patch-clamp technique was used to record II(Ca-L) in mice embryonic cardiomyocytes at different stages (the early developmental stage, EDS; the intermediate developmental stage, IDS; and the late developmental stage, LDS). Carbachol(More)
The properties of hyperpolarization-activated current (I(h)) in mouse dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons and the effect of hypoxia on the current have been studied using whole-cell configuration of the patch clamp technique. Under voltage-clamp mode, I(h), blocked by 1 mM extracellular CsCl, was present in 75.5% of mouse DRG neurons. The distribution rate(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of osmotic pressure on myocardial contractility and the possible mechanism. Electrical stimulation was used to excite papillary muscles of the left ventricle of Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats. The contractilities of myocardium in hyposmotic, isosmotic, and hyperosmotic perfusates were recorded. The(More)
The effects of adrenomedullin (ADM) on the L-type calcium currents (I(Ca,L)) and the mechanism of the signal transduction process were studied. Enzymatically isolated guinea-pig ventricular myocytes were used to measure ICa,L with whole-cell patch-clamp techniques. ADM at the concentrations of 1-100 nmol/L decreased ICa,L in a dose-dependent manner(More)
For determination the ionic mechanisms of the hypoxic acclimatization at the level of channels, male Spradue-Dawley rats were divided into two groups: control normoxic group and chronic intermittent hypoxic group [O2 concentration: (10 +/-0.5)%, hypoxia 8 h a day]. Using whole cell patch-clamp technique, voltage-gated potassium channel currents (IK(V)) were(More)
This study was designed to investigate the effects of platelet activating factor (PAF) on the action potential and potassium currents in guinea-pig ventricular myocytes. Whole cell patch clamp techniques were used. With 5 mmol/L ATP in the pipette electrode(mimic normal condition), 1 micromol/L PAF increased APD(90) from 225.8+/-23.3 to 352.8+/-29.8 ms(More)
This study is to explore a new method of investigating molecular basis for electrophysiological properties of early fetal cardiomyocytes. Single embryonic cardiomyocytes of mouse early developmental heart (E10.5) were obtained by a collagenase B digestion approach. After recording spontaneous action potential using whole cell patch clamp technique, the(More)
To explore the electrophysiological characteristics of embryonic cardiomyocytes, single embryonic cardiomyocytes were obtained from mice at different periods by a collegenase B digestion approach, whole cell patch clamp recording technique was used to record I(f) and I(Ca-L), and spontaneous action potential was also recorded. The morphological and(More)
