"Here, we investigate the influence of corticosteroids on MR-mediated changes in cellular electrophysiology. In vitro incubation of adult rat ventricular myocytes with the MR agonist aldosterone (100 nM, 24 h) increased I-CaL density by 34% (n= 16; p< 0.01). This effect was abrogated by co-incubation with the MR antagonist spironolactone (10 mc M). To investigate whether an increase in serum aldosterone concentration is sufficient...
