Red blood cells Ca2+ pump is not altered in essential hypertension of humans and Kyoto rats

The kinetic parameters of the Ca2+ pump were assessed in red blood cells of essential hypertensive subjects as compared to their respective controls. Uphill Ca2+ efflux was investigated in Ca2+ -saturated intact red blood cells using a new method recently developed for human red cells (Dagher,G. and Lew, V. J. Physiol. (London), in the press). 45Ca-equilibrated cells were obtained using ionophore A23187 and Ca2+ efflux was assessed after addition of excess CoCl2 which totally inhibits Ca2+ influx and thus exposes uphill Ca2+ extrusion by the pump. The results comprise methodological aspects of the use of this technique in rat red blood cells. The determination of the maximal velocity and the Ca2+ concentration for half-maximal stimulation (KCa 0.5) did not reveal any alteration in essential hypertensives and spontaneously hypertensive rats as compared to their controls.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
