Summary of "Activation of Ca1.2 and BK is involved in the downregulation of caffeine-induced contraction in mice mesenteric arteries."

Caffeine is a methylxanthine with multiple actions in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), including the increase in the intracellular Ca (Ca) concentration by the activation of ryanodine receptors (RyRs). The present study aimed at investigating the participation of Ca-influx through different Ca-channels on the transient contraction (TC) induced by caffeine in mice mesenteric arteries.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ischemic tissue injury produced by insufficient perfusion of intestinal tissue by the MESENTERIC CIRCULATION (i.e., CELIAC ARTERY; SUPERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY; INFERERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY; and MESENTERIC VEINS). It can progress from ISCHEMIA; EDEMA; and GANGRENE of the bowel wall to PERITONITIS and cardiovascular collapse.
