Pharmacological profile of store-operated Ca(2+) entry in intrapulmonary artery smooth muscle cells.


Store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) plays an important role in the contraction and proliferation of pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PASMCs). The aim of this study was to characterise the pharmacological properties of the SOCE pathway in freshly isolated PASMCs from rat lung and to determine whether this Ca(2+) entry pathway is sensitive to nitric oxide… (More)
