The relationship between spontaneous calcium oscillations and cell proliferation in cultured smooth muscle cells.


The relationship between spontaneous Ca2+ oscillations and cell proliferation was investigated in cultured longitudinal muscle cells from guinea pig ileum. BAPTA, caffeine, thapsigargine and La3+ suppressed the spontaneous Ca2+ oscillations and the DNA synthesis at 5.0 mM, 10.0 mM, 15.62 nM and 0.5 mM, respectively, whereas verapamil, nicardipine and… (More)
