OBJECTIVES Ca(++)-permeable nonselective cation channels mediate the entry of extracellular Ca++ in vascular endothelium. They are also partly responsible for Ca++ entry in vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs). The molecular identities of these channels have not been identified. The aim of this study is to examine whether rod-type nucleotide-gated nonselective cation (CNG1) channel, a channel which has been molecularly cloned, is related to the nonselective channels in vascular cells.
