The role of nitric oxide signaling in pulmonary circulation of high- and low-altitude newborn sheep under basal and acute hypoxic conditions
(Academic Press Inc., 2019)
Nitric oxide (NO) is the main vasodilator agent that drives the rapid decrease of pulmonary vascular resistance for the respiratory onset during the fetal to neonatal transition. Nevertheless, the enhanced NO generation ...
Long-term exposure to high-altitude chronic hypoxia during gestation induces neonatal pulmonary hypertension at sea level
We determined whether postnatal pulmonary hypertension induced by 70% of pregnancy at high altitude (HA) persists once the offspring return to sea level and investigated pulmonary vascular mechanisms operating under these ...
