BACKGROUND & AIMS Although calcium plays an essential role in intestinal smooth muscle contractile activity, calcium entry pathways in canine and human small intestine are largely unknown. The goal of this study was to characterize calcium channels, a potential entry pathway for calcium, in isolated circular smooth muscle cells of canine and human jejunum. METHODS Single freshly dissociated human and canine jejunal circular smooth muscle cells were studied using single-channel and perforated… CONTINUE READING
