Voltage-gated K(+) channels (Kv) play a critical role in regulating arterial tone by modulating the membrane potential of vascular smooth muscle cells. Our previous work demonstrated that the dominant 4-aminopyridine (4-AP)-sensitive, delayed rectifier Kv current of rabbit portal vein (RPV) myocytes demonstrates similar 4-AP sensitivity and biophysical(More)
The molecular identity of vascular delayed rectifier K(+) channels (K(DR)) is poorly characterized. Inhibition by 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) of K(DR) of rabbit portal vein (RPV) myocytes was studied by patch clamp and compared with that of channels composed of Kv1.5 and/or Kv1.2 subunits cloned from the RPV and expressed in mammalian cells. 4-AP block of K(DR)(More)
This paper aims to encourage greater reflexivity about the limits of prejudice reduction as a model of social change, particularly when applied to societies characterised by historically entrenched patterns of inequality. We begin by outlining some underlying values and assumptions of this model. We then elaborate how our research on political attitudes in(More)
