Effects of calcium channel antagonists on Ca2+ transients in rat and canine cardiomyocytes.

Abstract

First-generation Ca2+ channel antagonists depress myocardial contractility, but many of the newer Ca2+ channel blockers have a high degree of "vascular selectivity". This study compares the effects of the Ca2+ antagonists felodipine, amlodipine, mibefradil, verapamil and nifedipine, and the Ca2+ channel agonist. (S)(-)-Bay K-8644 on Ca2+ transient… (More)
