Effects of anion channel antagonists in canine colonic myocytes: comparative pharmacology of Cl−, Ca2+ and K+ currents
Volume‐Sensitive, Outwardly Rectifying (VSOR) Cl− currents were measured in canine colonic myocytes by whole‐cell patch clamp. Decreasing extracellular osmolarity 50 milliosmoles l−1 activatedExpand

Identification of T-Type α1H Ca2+ Channels (Cav3.2) in Major Pelvic Ganglion Neurons
Among autonomic neurons, sympathetic neurons of the major pelvic ganglia (MPG) are unique by expressing low-voltage–activated T-type Ca2+ channels. To date, the T-type Ca2+ channels have been poorl...

The association between pentraxin 3 and insulin resistance in obese children at baseline and after physical activity intervention.
BACKGROUND The role of pentraxin-3 (PTX3) in the development of insulin resistance is still not clear. We aimed to test 1) whether circulating PTX3 levels are associated with insulin resistance andExpand

Regulation of ATP-sensitive K(+) channels by protein kinase C in murine colonic myocytes.
We investigated the regulation of ATP-sensitive K(+) (K(ATP)) currents in murine colonic myocytes with patch-clamp techniques. Pinacidil (10(-5) M) activated inward currents in the presence of highExpand
