The afferent and efferent arterioles regulate the inflow and outflow resistance of the glomerulus, acting in concert to control the glomerular capillary pressure and glomerular filtration rate. The myocytes of these two vessels are remarkably different, especially regarding electromechanical coupling. This study investigated the expression and function of inward rectifier K(+) channels in these two vessels using perfused hydronephrotic rat kidneys and arterioles and myocytes isolated from… CONTINUE READING
