Properties of the ATP-sensitive K+ current activated by levcromakalim in isolated pulmonary arterial myocytes

Abstract

Tension and patch clamp recording techniques were used to investigate the relaxation of rabbit pulmonary artery and the properties of the K+ current activated by levcromakalim in isolated myocytes. Under whole-cell voltage clamp, holding at −60 mV in symmetrical 139 mm K+, levcromakalim (10 μm) induced a noisy inward current of −116 ± 19 pA (n = 13) which… (More)
