B-type natriuretic peptide modulates the action potential and the L-type calcium current in adult rat heart muscle cells.

Abstract

Natriuretic peptides seem to be a potent regulator of cell Ca2+ signalling in their action on the cardiovascular system. It was therefore the aim of this study to investigate the effect(s) of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) on the action potential and the L-type calcium current (I(CaL)) in the rat left ventricular myocytes. Perforated and whole cell patch… (More)
