The effect of melatonin on the Ca(2+) signaling process in bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAE) and in primary cultured vascular endothelial cells from normotensive Sprague Dawley (SDR) and genetically hypertensive (SHR) rats was investigated using the Ca(2+) indicator Fura-2. Acute applications of melatonin failed to initiate a Ca(2+) response in the three cell types considered. However, preincubating SHR aortic endothelial cells with exposure to melatonin increased the internal Ca(2… CONTINUE READING
