N-type and P/Q-type calcium channels regulate differentially the release of noradrenaline, ATP and beta-NAD in blood vessels.

Using HPLC techniques we evaluated the electrical field stimulation-evoked overflow of noradrenaline (NA), adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP), and beta-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (beta-NAD) in the presence of low nanomolar concentrations of omega-conotoxin GVIA or omega-agatoxin IVA in the canine mesenteric arteries and veins. omega-conotoxin GVIA… CONTINUE READING
