Activation of chloride currents and release of internally sequestered Ca(2+) in airway smooth muscle have long been associated with excitation and contraction. Surprisingly, however, two recent publications (Deshpande DA, Wang WC, McIlmoyle EL, Robinett KS, Schillinger RM, An SS, Sham JS, Liggett SB. Nat Med 16: 1299-1304, 2010; Gallos G, Yim P, Chang S, Zhang Y, Xu D, Cook JM, Gerthoffer WT, Emala CW Sr. Am J Physiol Lung Cell Mol Physiol 302: L248-L256, 2012) have linked both events to… CONTINUE READING
