The cerebrovascular remodeling is a prominent feature of hypertension and considered a major risk factor for stroke. Cerebrovascular smooth muscle cells meet volume challenge during this pathophysiological process. Our previous studies suggest that volume regulated chloride channels may be critical to the cell cycle of vascular smooth muscle cells. However,(More)
It is generally thought that receptor-operated Ca2+ entry is related to store-operated or capacitative Ca2+ entry mechanism. Recent evidence suggests that non-capacitative Ca2+ entry pathways are also involved in receptor activated Ca2+ influx in many different kinds of cells. In this study, we studied whether alpha1-adrenoreceptor (alpha1-AR)-activated(More)
