[Shear-stress sensing via P2 purinoceptors in vascular endothelial cells].


The mechanisms by which shear stress elevates intracellular Ca(2+) in endothelial cells (EC) are not fully understood. Here we report that endogenously released ATP contributes to shear stress-induced Ca(2+) responses. Application of a flow of Hank's balanced solution to human pulmonary artery EC (HPAEC) elicited shear stress-dependent increases in Ca(2… (More)
