  • We examined whether subcontractile concentrations of SPC (≤1 μmol/L) modulated vasoreactivity of rat intrapulmonary arteries using myography and measurement of intracellular [Ca 2+ ]. (ahajournals.org)
  • SPC also potentiated the responses to prostaglandin F 2α and U436619, which activate a 2-aminoethoxydiphenylborane sensitive nonselective cation channel in intrapulmonary arteries. (ahajournals.org)
  • SPC (1 μmol/L) caused translocation of PKCδ to the perinuclear region and cytoskeleton of cultured intrapulmonary artery smooth muscle cells. (ahajournals.org)
  • We present the novel finding that low, subcontractile concentrations of SPC potentiate Ca 2+ entry in intrapulmonary arteries through both voltage-dependent and independent pathways via a receptor-dependent mechanism involving PKCδ. (ahajournals.org)
  • 6,7 In contrast, we reported recently that, in rat small intrapulmonary arteries (IPAs), the SPC-induced elevation of intracellular [Ca 2+ ] is primarily because of activation of a voltage-independent Ca 2+ entry pathway that is insensitive to pertussis toxin and Ca 2+ release from stores.

  • GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- An FDA advisory committee has voted in support of approving an implantable sensor that measures pulmonary artery pressure and remotely reports that information to physicians. (medpagetoday.com)
