... either by the application of an Aplysia cardioactive peptide,NdWFamide, or by the stimulation of a nerve innervating the aorta (the vulvar nerve). We found that the enterins activate the 4-aminopyridine(4-AP)-sensitive K + channels, and thereby hyperpolarize the membrane potential of the aortic muscles...
