Regulation of the Ca2+-sensitive domains of the maxi-K channel in the mouse myometrium during gestation.

Large conductance Ca(2+)-activated K(+) channels (maxi-K channels) are known to modulate uterine activity during gestation. Electrophysiological recordings demonstrate that myometrial maxi-K current is suppressed in term-pregnant compared to non-pregnant mice. We sought to determine whether maxi-K current suppression is due to reduction of maxi-K channel… CONTINUE READING
