BACKGROUND The i.v. anaesthetic propofol produces bronchodilatation. Airway relaxation involves reduced intracellular Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)](i)) in airway smooth muscle (ASM) and lipid rafts (caveolae), and constitutional caveolin proteins regulate [Ca(2+)](i). We postulated that propofol-induced bronchodilatation involves caveolar disruption. METHODS Caveolar(More)
