Palytoxin-induced increase in endothelial Ca2+ concentration in the rabbit aortic valve

Abstract

Palytoxin (PTX) is one of the most potent toxins isolated from marine coelenterates of the genus Palythoa. It induces depolarization in various types of cells by increasing the permeability for monovalent cations. It has been reported that PTX induces endothelium-dependent relaxation of vascular smooth muscle. In this study, we examined the effect of PTX on… (More)
