Stimulation of β3-adrenoceptors relaxes rat urinary bladder smooth muscle via activation of the large-conductance Ca2+-activated K+ channels We investigated the role of large-conductance Ca(2+)-activated K(+) (BK) channels in beta3-adrenoceptor (beta3-AR)-induced relaxation in rat urinary bladder smooth muscle (UBSM). BRL 37344, a specific beta3-AR agonist, inhibits spontaneous contractions of isolated UBSM strips. SR59230A, a specific beta3-AR antagonist, and H89, a PKA inhibitor, reduced (...) the inhibitory effect of BRL 37344. Iberiotoxin, a specific BK channel inhibitor, shifts the BRL 37344 concentration response curves for contraction amplitude, net muscle force, and tone to the right. Freshly dispersed UBSM cells and the perforated mode of the patch-clamp technique were used to determine further the role of beta3-AR stimulation by BRL 37344 on BK channel activity. BRL 37344 increased spontaneous, transient, outward BK current (STOC) frequency by 46.0 +/- 20.1%. In whole cell mode

6400. Raloxifene relaxes rat cerebral arteries in vitro and inhibits L-type voltage-sensitive Ca2+ channels. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Raloxifene relaxes rat cerebral arteries in vitro and inhibits L-type voltage-sensitive Ca2+ channels. Because of their mixed estrogen-agonist and estrogen-antagonist properties, selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) are considered promising substitutes for hormone replacement therapy. Raloxifene and other SERMs confer estrogen-like cardiovascular protective effects but lack the carcinogenic activity of exogenous estrogen. However, little is known about the cerebrovascular action (...) of raloxifene. Therefore, we studied the effects of raloxifene on the mechanisms regulating rat cerebral artery tone.Ring segments of the isolated rat posterior communicating cerebral arteries were mounted in a microvessel myograph for measurement of isometric tension. Whole-cell L-type voltage-sensitive Ca2+ currents were recorded using the perforated patch-clamp technique. Raloxifene (0.1 to 10 micromol/L) reduced the contractile responses to U46619, phenylephrine, and endothelin-1 in normal Krebs
