Stimulation of voltage-dependent contractions by calcium channel activator Bay K 8644 in the human upper urinary tract in vitro.

Abstract

The effects of calcium agonist Bay K 8644 on mechanical activity were studied in isolated preparations of the human upper urinary tract. Bay K 8644 increased the amplitude of phasic-rhythmic contractions in calyceal segments in a concentration-dependent way. In inactive and unstimulated ureteral muscle strips, Bay K 8644 did not induce contractions. After… (More)
