Enhancement of cholinergic activity by [M.sub.1] and [M.sub.2] muscarinic receptor agonists carbachol (22) and pilocarpine (23) or the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor soman (24) produce convulsions in animals.
The [I.sub.K1] blocker Ba[Cl.sub.2], [I.sub.SK] blocker apamin, [I.sub.SK4] blocker TRAM 34, [I.sub.Cl- Ca] blocker niflumic acid, and TRPV1 blocker capsaicipine as well as [K.sub.ACh] activator carbachol (CCh) did not significantly change APs (Figures 1 and 5).
For assessing the proliferation of coculture system, a 1: 1 combination of INS-1 and NG108-15 cells was seeded in 96-well plates at a density of 5 x [10.sup.3] cells per well, allowed to adhere overnight, and subsequently exposed to different coculture media (100 [micro]l) with or without atropine sulfate (Meilun, Dalian, China) or carbachol (Meilun).
We found similar reduced endothelial-dependent relaxation to cumulative doses of carbachol in both SHR and SHR MOI aortas compared to WKY aortas, suggesting that MOI was not able to ameliorate endothelial function in conductance arteries (Figure 6(a)).

As compared to the control cells, the patient-specific iPSC-derived smooth muscle cells were found to have abnormal organization of alpha-actin filaments, high rate of proliferation and migration, low sensitivity to vasoactive drugs (carbachol and endothelin-1), and decreased capacity of vessel-like structure formation [4, 69].
