This study examined contribution of Na(+)-dependent processes to the regulation of free cytosolic calcium (Ca2+i) in cultured vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) using fura-2. Removal of Na+ from superfusate (replacement with choline) resulted in an increment of Ca2+i that was greatly augmented by pretreatment with ouabain. Under both conditions, Ca2+i(More)
