Dysfunction of ion handling, including binding and fluxes (passive and active transport) of physiologically important ions such as potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium, by vascular smooth muscle cell membranes has repeatedly been reported to be associated with the pathophysiology of hypertension. The specific purpose of this review is to summarize and evaluate the evidence for alterations of calcium ion (Ca2+) handling by vascular smooth muscle in various forms of hypertension in the… CONTINUE READING
