• In this investigation we sought to identify progesterone-induced adaptations in human myometrial smooth muscle cells that may alter Ca21 signaling in response to contractile agents. (semanticscholar.org)
  • In the absence of compensatory changes in other vasodilatory mechanisms, this may contribute to incomplete corporal smooth muscle relaxation and the etiology of erectile dysfunction in some patients. (elsevier.com)
  • Para-aminoblebbistatin is a slightly weaker myosin inhibitor than blebbistatin (for rabbit skeletal muscle myosin S1 IC50=1.3 μM, for Dictyostelium discoideum myosinII motor domain IC50=6.6 μM with only 90% maximal inhibition), it is non-fluorescent, photostable, neither cytotoxic nor phototoxic.

  • What is the distance of the synaptic cleft in Multi-Unit smooth muscle Contact Junctions? (sporcle.com)
  • He proposed that the ergotoxine caused "selective paralysis of motor myoneural junctions" (i.e. those tending to increase the blood pressure) hence revealing that under normal conditions that there was a "mixed response", including a mechanism that would relax smooth muscle and cause a fall in blood pressure.

  • In this sense it is surprising that the highly popular topic of ever-growing importance, namely "pharmacology of smooth muscle" has, in the knowl- edge of the editors of this volume, never been treated as such. (springer.com)
