High impact information on Mesenteric Arteries

  • To examine the effects of RMCP-II more directly 1 mg of the highly purified chymase was introduced into the cranial mesenteric artery in ex vivo perfused normal rats [7].
  • In mesenteric arteries, EDHF-mediated relaxations and hyperpolarizations were significantly reduced in Cu,Zn-SOD-/- mice with no inhibitory effect of catalase, while endothelium-independent relaxations and hyperpolarizations were preserved [8].
  • EDHF-mediated relaxation and hyperpolarization in response to acetylcholine (ACh) were markedly attenuated in small mesenteric arteries from eNOS knockout (eNOS-KO) mice [9].
  • We have undertaken this study to investigate the effect of the normalization of vascular NO production, as estimated by aortic cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) concentration and endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) protein expression in the aorta and mesenteric artery, on sodium and water excretion [10].
  • Using perfused rat mesenteric arteries, PAMP (0, 1, 5, and 10 pmol/ml) decreased norepinephrine overflow by periarterial electrical nerve stimulation in a dose-dependent fashion (0.244 +/- 0.043, 0.231 +/- 0.048, 0.195 +/- 0.061 and 0.168 +/- 0.051 ng/gram tissue weigh: NS, P < 0.05, and P < 0.02, respectively) [11].
