Altered L-type Ca(2+) channel currents in vascular smooth muscle cells from experimental diabetic rats.

Abstract

Vascular complications of diabetes are associated with abnormal Ca(2+) handling by vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in which the alteration in L-type voltage-dependent Ca(2+) channel (VDCC) currents may play an important role. In the present study, the characteristics of L-type VDCC currents in tail artery SMCs from streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats… (More)
