We studied the effects of six dihydropyridines on the specific binding of
(+)-[3H]-isradipine to vascular (portal vein) and cardiac isolated membranes to
achieve the relative cardiovascular selectivity of these compounds. Elgodipine,
(+)-oxodipine and nifedipine had a significantly higher affinity for the vascular
L-type calcium channel than for the cardiac calcium channel while nicardipine
showed opposite properties. The other dihydropyridines (nitrendipine and
(+)-isradipine) had similar affinities for the cardiac and vascular calcium
channels. As the membrane potential of isolated membranes is about 0 mV, these
results suggest that the differences in binding of these dihydropyridines to
L-type calcium channels in vascular and cardiac cells may be attributed to
differences in the molecular structure of these calcium channels.
