Expression of Ca2+ -activated K+ channels in human dermal fibroblasts and their roles in apoptosis.


BACKGROUNDS/AIMS Cell proliferation and apoptosis are responsible for maintaining normal tissue homeostasis, and K(+) currents play important roles in regulating the physiological balance between them. This function of Ca(2+)-activated K(+) (K(Ca)) channels has been demonstrated in many types of tissues, but not in dermal fibroblasts. We investigated the… (More)
