KCNQ5 Potassium Channel Activation Underlies #Vasodilation by #Tea

Tea, produced from the evergreen Camellia sinensis, has reported therapeutic properties against multiple pathologies, including hypertension. Although some studies validate the health benefits of tea, few have investigated the molecular mechanisms of action. The KCNQ5 voltage-gated potassium channel contributes to vascular smooth muscle tone and neuronal M-current regulation. Methods: We applied electrophysiology, myography, mass spectrometry … Continue reading KCNQ5 Potassium Channel Activation Underlies #Vasodilation by #Tea
