OBJECTIVES Abnormalities in platelet calcium handling have been reported in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) compared with Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats. Furthermore, several reports have indicated that WKY rats differ from both SHR and Wistar rats. The objectives of the present study were to investigate platelet calcium handling in three normotensive stains and in SHR, and to confirm the abnormal calcium mobilization in SHR. DESIGN AND METHODS We compared calcium handling in fura-2-loaded… CONTINUE READING
