Impaired contraction and relaxation in the aorta of streptozotocin-diabetic rats
It is known that diabetes mellitus alters the vascular responsiveness to several vasoconstrictors and vasodilators. Endothelium-derived nitric oxide is a potent endogenous nitrovasodilator, and endothelin-1 (ET-1) is a ...
Effect of endothelin-1 on spontaneous contractions and effects of nimodipine and isradipine on endothelin-1-induced contractions in myometrial strips isolated from normal pregnant and preeclamptic women
(MUNKSGAARD INT PUBL LTD, 1998)
Background. To examine the effect of endothelin-l (ET-1) on spontaneous contractile activity and the effects of nimodipine and isradipine on ET-l-induced contractile responses in myometrial strips isolated from normal ...
Effects of nimodipine and isradipine on endothelin-1-induced contraction of pregnant rat myometrium
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 1998)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of nimodipine and isradipine on endothelin-1-induced contractions of isolated pregnant rat myometrium. Endothelin-1 at 10(-10)-10(-8) M dose-dependently increased the ...
Effects of sympathectomy on endothelin-1 and histamine responses of rabbit carotid artery
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 1997)
1. The effects of chronic sympathectomy on contractile responses of rabbit common carotid artery was studied in vitro. 2. Endothelin-1 (ET-I), histamine, KCl and papaverine concentration-response curves of sympathectomized ...
Effects of endothelin-1 and calcium channel blockers on contractions in human myometrium - A study on myometrial strips from normal and diabetic pregnant women
(SCI PRINTERS & PUBL INC, 1999)
OBJECTIVE: We studied the effect of endothelin (ET)-1 on spontaneous contractions and the effects of nimodipine and isradipine on ET-l-induced contractions in myometrial tissue from normal and diabetic pregnant women. STUDY ...
