Despite the importance of magnesium in essential hypertension, few data are available on the ionized intracellular concentration of this ion. We therefore studied intralymphocyte free intracellular magnesium (Mgi) in 32 untreated essential hypertensive subjects and 27 normotensive control subjects by means of a fluorimetric technique based on the use of the new magnesium-sensitive dye furaptra. We also measured intralymphocyte ionized calcium (Cai) with fura 2. No statistically significant… CONTINUE READING
