PGE compounds increase the rapid sodium inward current through the cardiac cell membrane without influencing its slow component. Considering the effects of epinephrine, cellulin A and prostaglandins on cardiac transmembrane potentials, transmembrane currents and on the exchange diffusion of sodium across the cardiac cell membrane, a model has been proposed to explain the sodium permeability changes in the heart cells indicating the possible role of prostaglandins in these processes.
