Cytosolic Ca2+ and protein kinase C (PKC) may regulate the myogenic contraction of arterial myocytes. The role of these second messengers is examined in skeletal muscle small arteries, which have strong myogenic activity, and mesenteric small arteries, which have weak myogenic activity. The vessels were isolated and cannulated. The inner diameter was measured with a video-digitizing system. Cytosolic Ca2+ concentration was assessed by fura 2. Skeletal muscle small arteries dilated from 122… CONTINUE READING
