A complete biochemical basis for latch state remains to be elaborated, but it is associated with dephosphorylation of MLC20 (Arner and Malmqvist, 1998). It is proposed that a speciWc form of dephosphorylated crossbridge is generated that remains attached. Whether actin-associated proteins such as caldesmon or calponin contribute to the formation of this state remains speculative. Conclusions The generation of arterial tone is a complex and highly regulated process. Many of the basic features and regulators of the contractile process in vascular smooth muscle are now well understood, yet there are deWcits in our knowledge.
