BACKGROUND The objective of the investigation was to demonstrate the presence of voltage-dependent Ca2+ current in human prostate smooth muscle cells and to determine their biophysical characteristics. METHODS Prostate smooth muscle cells were isolated from biopsy samples of human prostates obtained from prostatectomy specimens or TURP chips. Electrophysiological recordings were made under current- or voltage-clamp using patch-type electrodes. RESULTS The average resting potential of… CONTINUE READING
