Abstract

We tested the hypothesis that alterations in myoplasmic free Ca2+ (Ca(m)) regulation in coronary smooth muscle after exercise training (Ex) underlie changes in vasomotor function. Yucatan miniature pigs were endurance trained by treadmill running for 16-20 wk. Simultaneous determination of Ca(m) (fura-2 microfluorometry) and contraction during endothelin exposure in coronary arteries were then performed. Endothelin (10-9 to 10-7 M) was administered either cumulatively or as a single concentration. Ex significantly attenuated the Ca(m) response to 10-9 and 10-8 M endothelin. Developed tension was significantly diminished at 10-8 M endothelin in Ex pigs, producing a rightward shift in the concentration- developed tension response. Attenuated Ca(m) and contractile response to 10- 8 M endothelin were present after Ex whether endothelin was applied cumulatively or as a single concentration. The developed tension-Ca(m) relationship showed an increased Ca(m) sensitivity of contraction with Ex. Endothelin (10-8 M)-induced Ca2+ influx, estimated by Ba2+ influx in low-Na+ solution, was increased threefold in coronary arteries from Ex pigs. The decreased Ca(m) in the presence of increased divalent cation (i.e., Ca2+) influx during 10-8 M endothelin suggests a greatly enhanced sarcolemmal Ca2+ cycling in coronary arteries from Ex pigs.
