Endothelial cells have ectonucleotidases that catabolize extracellular nucleotides and are sensitive to the presence of cations. Our aim was to determine whether the metabolism of extracellular nucleotides is influenced by exposure of endothelial cells to high potassium relevant to human pathophysiology. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells were incubated… CONTINUE READING
