We investigated the mechanism by which extracellular acidification promotes relaxation in rat thoracic aorta. The relaxation response to HCl-induced extracellular acidification (7.4 to 6.5) was(More)
Relaxation induced by nitric oxide (NO) donors is impaired in renal hypertensive two kidney-one clip (2K-1C) rat aortas. It has been proposed that caveolae are important in signal transduction and(More)
We hypothesized that endothelial AT1-activated NAD(P)H oxidase-driven generation of reactive oxygen species during type I-diabetes impairs carotid ACE2-angiotensin-(1-7)-Mas axis functionality, which(More)
The present study was designed to investigate the contribution of endothelial cell caveolae to vascular relaxation in aortas from a normotensive (2K) and renal hypertensive (2K-1C) rat. For that(More)
The purpose from this study was to investigate the consequences of sensory neurocompensation to carotid balloon injury in diabetic rats on angiotensin II-induced contraction and basal blood flow in(More)
OBJECTIVES Our main objectives were to investigate the affinity properties of endothelial and muscular α1D -adrenoceptors and to characterize the cross-talk between endothelial α1D -adrenoceptors and(More)
BACKGROUND Renin-angiotensin system triggers vascular remodeling and fibrosis during the renovascular hypertensive two-kidney, one-clip (2K1C) model by oxidative-stress-mediated mechanisms. Thus, we(More)
