Selective inhibition of inward rectifier K+ channels (Kir2.1 or Kir2.2) abolishes protection by ischemic preconditioning in rabbit ventricular cardiomyocytes



Selective inhibition of inward rectifier K+ channels (Kir2.1 or Kir2.2) abolishes protection by ischemic preconditioning in rabbit ventricular cardiomyocytes



Circulation Research 95(3): 325-332



Volume regulatory Cl- channels are key regulators of ischemic preconditioning (IPC). Because Cl- efflux must be balanced by an efflux of cations to maintain cell membrane electroneutrality during volume regulation, we hypothesize that IK1 channels may play a role in IPC. We subjected cultured cardiomyocytes to 60-minute simulated ischemia ( SI) followed by 60-minute of simulated reperfusion (SR) and assessed percent cell death using trypan blue staining.
