Differential vascular adaptive response to stress exposure in male and female rats: Role of gonadal hormones and endothelial cells
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2007-01-01)
Although there are reports concerning a vascular adaptive response to stress in males, this is not yet defined in females. The aim of this study was to delineate functional gender differences in the rat vascular adaptive ...
Increased Na, K, Cl cotransporter and Na, K-ATPase activity of vascular tissue in two-kidney Goldblatt hypertension
The properties of the Na/K pump and Na, K, Cl cotransporter were studied in vascular tissue of two-kidney Goldblatt hypertensive rats. These transport systems were measured as ouabain-sensitive and bumetanide-sensitive ...
Acute lead-induced vasoconstriction in the vascular beds of isolated perfused rat tails is endothelium-dependent
Chronic lead exposure induces hypertension in humans and animals, affecting endothelial function. However, studies concerning acute cardiovascular effects are lacking. We investigated the effects of acute administration ...
Diabetes and Vascular Disease: Basic Concepts of Nitric Oxide Physiology, Endothelial Dysfunction, Oxidative Stress and Therapeutic Possibilities
(BENTHAM SCIENCE PUBL LTD, 2010)
The vascular manifestations associated with diabetes mellitus (DM) result from the dysfunction of several vascular physiology components mainly involving the endothelium, vascular smooth muscle and platelets. It is also ...
Functional consequences of immune cell adhesion to endothelial cells
Research regarding the interactions between the endothelium and immune cells has undergone a significant expansion during the past decade. Major shifts of emphasis have been the norm, from the production of a detail catalog ...
