Role of KATP channel in heat shock and pharmacological preconditioning.


Heat shock (HS) and 4-monophosphoryl lipid A (MLA, a non-toxic analogue of endotoxin) protects the myocardium against ischemia-reperfusion injury. We studied the involvement of ATP-sensitive potassium channel (KATP channel) in ischemic protection induced by these stimuli. Anesthetized rabbits were preconditioned with either HS (by raising temperature to 42… (More)
