The effects of caffeine on both levcromakalim-induced macroscopic and unitary currents in pig proximal urethra were investigated by the use of patch-clamp techniques (conventional whole-cell configuration and cell-attached configuration). The effects of caffeine were also examined on currents in inside-out patches of COS7 cells expressing carboxy terminus truncated inwardly rectifying K(+) channel (Kir6.2) subunits (i.e. Kir6.2DeltaC36) which form ATP-sensitive K(+) channels (K(ATP) channels… CONTINUE READING
