Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relaxant responses to the ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channel opener cromakalim in corpus cavernosum strips from 1-, 2-, 4-, 6-, and 8-week streptozocin-induced diabetic rats. Cromakalim (1 nM-0.1 mM) produced concentration-dependent relaxation in phenylephrine (7.5 μM)-precontracted isolated rat corporal strips. Compared with age-matched control animals, a significant enhancement in cromakalim-induced relaxation of corpus cavernosum was observed in 2-week diabetic animals, whereas the relaxant responses to cromakalim were decreased in 6-and 8-week diabetic animals. However, the cromakalim-induced relaxation was not altered in either 1-week or 4-week rat corporal strips in comparison with corresponding age-matched non-diabetic groups. Preincubation with the KATP channel blocker glibenclamide (10 μM) significantly inhibited the cromakalim-induced relaxation in both non-diabetic and diabetic rat corpus cavernosum, but neither the voltage-dependent K+ channel (KV) antagonist 4-aminopyridine (1 mM) nor the calcium-activated K+ channel (KCa) antagonist charybdotoxin (0.1 μM) had significant effect on cromakalim-induced relaxation in both control and diabetic rat corporal strips. Relaxation responses to the nitric oxide donor sodium nitroprusside (1 nM-0.1 mM) in diabetic rat corpus cavernosum were similar to that of age-matched controls. These data demonstrated that the relaxant responses to cromakalim were altered in diabetic cavernosal strips in a time dependent manner, suggesting that the period of diabetes mellitus may play a key role in the KATP channels function in rat corpus cavernosum. © 2007.
