In humans with essential hypertension and in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR), insulin resistance may be present even in lean individuals. As the basis for this abnormality is unknown, we have used a newly developed fluorophore to measure intracellular free-Mg2+ concentrations in cultured aortic vascular smooth muscle cells and striated muscle cells… CONTINUE READING
