Since a tight electromechanical coupling exists in vascular smooth muscle, even small shifts of the membrane potential are sufficient to change the vascular lumen. The extracellular H+ and K+ concentrations are important effectors for the adjustment of the membrane potential. The ion concentrations in the immediate neighbourhood of the cell membrane can be… CONTINUE READING
