1. The effects of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) (10(-6)-10(-3) M) on membrane potential, membrane currents, intracellular calcium concentration, resting muscle tone and contractions elicited by electrical field stimulation (EFS) and carbachol were examined in cat tracheal strips and isolated smooth muscle cells. 2. H2O2 (10(-4) and 10(-5) M) enhanced the amplitude of contractions and excitatory junction potentials (e.j.p.) evoked by EFS without changing muscle tone and resting membrane potential of… CONTINUE READING
