K(ATP) channels and pancreatic islet blood flow in anesthetized rats: increased blood flow induced by potassium channel openers.

Abstract

K(ATP) channels are important for insulin secretion and depolarization of vascular smooth muscle. In view of the importance of drugs affecting K(ATP) channels in the treatment of diabetes, we investigated the effects of these channels on splanchnic blood perfusion in general and pancreatic islet blood flow in particular. We treated anesthetized Sprague… (More)
