1. Recently, 4-chloro-3-ethyl phenol (CEP) has been shown to cause the release of internally stored Ca2+ apparently through ryanodine-sensitive Ca2+ channels, in fractionated skeletal muscle terminal cisternae and in a variety of non-excitable cell types. Its action on smooth muscle is unknown. In this study, we characterized the actions of CEP on vascular contraction in endothelium-denuded dog mesenteric artery. We also determined its ability to release Ca2+, by use of Ca2+ imaging techniques… CONTINUE READING
