K channel openers activate different K channels in vascular smooth muscle cells

Abstract

The properties of K channels activated by K channel openers (nicorandil, cromakalim, pinacidil, etc.) were investigated using conventional microelectrode and patchclamp methods. In single smooth muscle cells of the rat and rabbit portal veins, K channel openers produced an outward current sensitive to glibenclamide, 4-AP, and TEA (1 mM), but insensitive to… (More)
