Relationship between force and regulatory myosin light chain phosphorylation in airway smooth muscle.

Abstract

We tested the hypothesis that increases in force at a given cytosolic Ca(2+) concentration (i.e., Ca(2+) sensitization) produced by muscarinic stimulation of canine tracheal smooth muscle (CTSM) are produced in part by mechanisms independent of changes in regulatory myosin light chain (rMLC) phosphorylation. This was accomplished by comparing the… (More)
