Ionic interactions between the plasma membrane (PM) and the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) play a crucial role in smooth muscle activation and homeostasis. The most common form of Ca2+ signalling seen in vascular smooth musde of conduit arteries and capacitance veins consists of repetitive asynchronous Ca2+ waves. In the inferior vena cava of the rabbit these… CONTINUE READING
