BACKGROUND We tested the hypothesis that the stretch-activated, four-transmembrane domain, two pore potassium channels (K2P), TREK-1 and TRAAK are gestationally-regulated in human myometrium and contribute to uterine relaxation during pregnancy until labor. METHODOLOGY We determined the gene and protein expression of K2P channels in non-pregnant, pregnant… CONTINUE READING
