Troglitazone and vascular reactivity: role of glucose and calcium.


We sought to determine whether insulin/insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and an insulin-sensitizing agent, troglitazone, have additive vasodilatory effects and the possible involvement of intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) and/or glucose utilization in these effects. Contractile responses to norepinephrine (NE) and potassium chloride (KCl), as well as… (More)
