Effects of Ca2+ channel antagonists on chromaffin cell death and cytosolic Ca2+ oscillations induced by veratridine.

Abstract

Exposure of bovine chromaffin cells to 30 microM veratridine for 24 h led to 70-80% cell death as reflected by phase contrast microscopy, trypan blue exclusion, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release and cell catecholamine contents. Na+ deprivation, Ca2+ deletion or tetrodotoxin (5 microM) prevented the veratridine-induced cell damage. Nimodipine and verapamil… (More)
