Vasomotion has chloride-dependency in rat mesenteric small arteries


The possibility that Ca2+-activated Cl− conductances (CaCCs) contribute to oscillations in vascular tone (vasomotion) is tested in isolated mesenteric small arteries from rats where cGMP independent (I Cl(Ca)) and cGMP-dependent (I Cl(Ca,cGMP)) chloride conductances are important. The effect of anion substitution and Cl− channel blockers on noradrenaline… (More)
