[Effect of potassium channel on the proliferation, apoptosis and related-gene expression in human bronchial smooth muscle cells].

OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of three potassium channels, voltage-dependent K(+) channel (K(V)), calcium-activated K(+) channel (K(Ca)) and ATP-sensitive K(+) channel (K(ATP)), on the proliferation, apoptosis and related-gene expression in human bronchial smooth muscle cells (HBSMCs). METHODS Normal human bronchial tissues were obtained from 5… (More)
