AIM Mechanosensitive conductances were reported in cardiac fibroblasts, but the properties of single channels mediating their mechanosensitivity remain uncharacterized. The aim of this work was to investigate single mechano-gated channels (MGCs) activated by mechanical deformations of cardiac fibroblasts. METHODS Currents through single MGCs and(More)
Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate- and caffeine-induced Ca2+ release was examined in neurons isolated from the mollusc Helix pomatia using Ca2+ indicator fura-2 and fluorescent digital-imaging microscopy technique. Extracellular application of caffeine caused a fast and pronounced augmentation of [Ca2+]i whose amplitude and kinetics differ in the centre of the(More)
