Lack of Ca2+ ionophoretic activity of hypoglycemic sulfonylureas in excitable cells and isolated secretory granules.


Beta-Cell-rich pancreatic islets, neurohypophyses, and adrenal medullae were used for exploring whether hypoglycemic sulfonylureas exhibit Ca2+ ionophoretic properties. Exposure of these excitable organs to depolarizing concentrations of K+ resulted in stimulation both of 45Ca uptake and efflux. Although tolbutamide does not bind preferentially to… (More)
