Changes in the expression of the L-type voltage-dependent calcium channel during pregnancy and parturition in the rat.


The L-type voltage-dependent calcium channel (L-VDCC) is assumed to be a critical component of excitation-contraction coupling in smooth muscle. Using pregnant rat myometrium, we examined the hypothesis that parturition is associated with significant changes in the expression of the alpha 1 subunit of the L-VDCC at the mRNA or protein level. The binding of… (More)
