Potassium channel activation and relaxation by nicorandil in rat small mesenteric arteries.

1. We used whole-cell patch clamp to investigate the currents activated by nicorandil in smooth muscle cells isolated from rat small mesenteric arteries, and studied the relaxant effect of nicorandil using myography. 2. Nicorandil (300 microM) activated currents with near-linear current-voltage relationships and reversal potentials near to the equilibrium… CONTINUE READING
