T-type calcium channels are involved in hypoxic pulmonary hypertension

By Marc Chevalier, Guillaume Gilbert, Etienne Roux, Philipe Lory, Roger Marthan, Jean-Pierre Savineau and Jean-François Quignard


Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is the main disease of pulmonary circulation. Alteration in calcium homeostasis in pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PASMCs) is recognized as a key feature in PH. The present study was undertaken to investigate the involvement of T-type voltage-gated calcium channels (T-VGCCs) in the control of the pulmonary vascular tone and thereby in the development of PH.status: publishe
