Title:
Control of intestinal motility by the Ca(v)1.2 L-type calcium channel in mice. 
Abstract:
The Ca(v)1.2 L-type Ca2+ channel is the dominant voltage-activated Ca2+ channel in heart and smooth muscle. The functional significance of this channel was studied in intestinal smooth muscle from mice carrying a smooth muscle-specific, conditional inactivation of the Ca(v)1.2 gene (Ca(v)1.2SMACKO mice). Inactivation was complete within 4 wk after tamoxifen treatment and confirmed by RT-PCR, Western blot and functional analysis. Ca(v)1.2SMACKO mice show reduced feces excretion, absence of rhythm...    »
