We examined the effects of the PPARα activator fenofibrate on voltage-dependent K+ (Kv) channels using a patch clamp technique in native rabbit coronary arterial smooth muscle cells. Kv current was inhibited by application of fenofibrate in a concentration-dependent manner, with an apparent IC50 value of 6.39 ± 0.53μM and a slope value (Hill coefficient) of(More)
We investigated the effect of cisapride, a selective serotonin 5-HT4-receptor agonist, on voltage-dependent K(+) (Kv) channels using freshly isolated smooth muscle cells from the coronary arteries of rabbits. The amplitude of Kv currents was reduced by cisapride in a concentration-dependent manner, with an IC50 value of 6.77 ± 6.01 μM and a Hill coefficient(More)
We demonstrated the effect of nortriptyline, a tricyclic antidepressant drug and serotonin reuptake inhibitor, on voltage-dependent K+ (Kv) channels in freshly isolated rabbit coronary arterial smooth muscle cells using a whole-cell patch clamp technique. Nortriptyline inhibited Kv currents in a concentration-dependent manner, with an apparent IC50 value of(More)
We examined the inhibitory effect of amiodarone, a class III anti-arrhythmic agent, on voltage-dependent K+ (Kv) currents in freshly isolated rabbit coronary arterial smooth muscle cells, using a whole-cell patch clamp technique. Amiodarone inhibited Kv currents in a concentration-dependent manner, with a half-maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) value(More)
We examined the effects of the Rho-associated protein kinase (ROCK) inhibitor Y-27632 on voltage-dependent K+ (Kv) channels in rabbit coronary arterial smooth muscle cells using the whole-cell patch clamp technique. Y-27632 reduced the amplitude of the Kv current in a concentration-dependent manner, with an IC50 of 0.87 ± 0.06 μmol/l and a Hill coefficient(More)
AIMS The vasorelaxant effects of the anti-diabetic drug, mitiglinide in phenylephrine (Phe)-pre-contracted aortic rings were examined. MATERIALS AND METHODS Arterial tone measurement was performed in aortic smooth muscle cells. KEY FINDINGS Mitiglinide dose-dependently induced vasorelaxation. Application of the large-conductance Ca2+-activated K+ (BKCa)(More)
Cardiomyocytes differentiated from human pluripotent stem cells provide promising tools for screening of cardiotoxic drugs. For evaluation of human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes for cardiotoxicity test, in the present study, human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) were differentiated to cardiomyocytes, followed by metabolic selection to enrich the(More)
We investigated the inhibitory effect of dapoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), on voltage-dependent K+ (Kv) channels using native smooth muscle cells from rabbit coronary arteries. Dapoxetine inhibited Kv channel currents in a concentration-dependent manner, with an IC50 value of 2.68±0.94 μmol/L and a slope value (Hill coefficient)(More)
We examined the effects of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) sertraline on voltage-dependent K+ (Kv) channels in freshly isolated rabbit coronary arterial smooth muscle cells using the voltage-clamp technique. Sertraline decreased the Kv channel current in a dose-dependent manner, with an IC50 value of 0.18 μM and a slope value (Hill(More)
AIMS We investigated the vasorelaxant effect of nateglinide and its related mechanisms using phenylephrine (Phe)-induced precontracted aortic rings. METHODS Arterial tone measurement was performed in aortic smooth muscle. RESULTS The application of nateglinide induced vasorelaxation in a concentration-dependent manner. Pretreatment with the(More)
