The physiology of smooth muscle, with particular emphasis placed on: 1) vascular reactivity in hypertension and diabetes, 2) penile and clitoral erection in sexual dysfunction, 3) mechanisms of bladder dysfunction in diabetes, 4) cellular and subcellular mechanisms of contraction and relaxation of vascular smooth muscle (cell signaling, electrogenic sodium pump, subcellular calcium distribution, monovalent cation movements, nitric oxide, RhoA/Rho kinase, etc.), 5) adrenergic neurotransmission in blood vessels, and 6) intercellular communication between smooth muscle cells.
