BACKGROUND In airway smooth muscle (ASM), Ca2+ influx in response to the Ca2+ depletion of the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) seems to play a role in the regulation of intracellular free Ca2+(More)
Androgen vasorelaxing action is a subject of recent interest. We investigated the involvement of l-type voltage-operated Ca(2+) channels (L-VOCCs), K(+) channels, intracellular Ca(2+) concentration(More)
We evaluated the role of protein kinase C (PKC) in the sustained bronchial contraction (SBC) induced by carbachol (Cch) or histamine in a Ca2+-free medium and the possibility that each agonist uses a(More)
1. Caffeine has been widely used as a pharmacological tool to evaluate Ca(2+) release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum in isolated smooth muscle cells. However, in nervous tissue this drug also causes(More)
