Expression and function of the K+ channel KCNQ genes in human arteries
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
KCNQ-encoded voltage-gated potassium channels (K(v) 7) have recently been identified as important anti-constrictor elements in rodent blood vessels but the role of these channels and the effects of their modulation in human arteries remain unknown. Here, we have assessed KCNQ gene expression and function in human arteries ex vivo.
