Increased red cell sodium-lithium countertransport and lymphocyte cytosolic calcium are separate phenotypes in patients with essential hypertension


Increased red blood cell sodium-lithium countertransport (SLC) activity and elevated intracellular calcium have been observed in hypertensive patients. The association of these ion transport abnormalities with each other and with another phenotype, insulin resistance, has been suggested. We investigated whether elevated SLC activity and increased lymphocyte… (More)
