Molecular and functional identification of m1 muscarinic acetylcholine receptors in rat ventricular myocytes.
The expression of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (mAChR) subtypes in freshly isolated adult rat ventricular myocytes was investigated by reverse transcription of cellular mRNA followed by… Expand

Sympathetic innervation of pulmonary circulation and its role in hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction.
The purposes of this study were to localize the position of spinal center of sympathetic nerve which controls the pulmonary circulation, and to evaluate the role of pulmonary sympathetic nerve in… Expand
Effects of cigarette smoking on the function of metabolizing arachidonic acid and angiotensin I in the isolated perfused rat lungs.
The effects of acute and chronic cigarette smoking on the metabolism of exogenous arachidonic acid (AA) and angiotensin I (AI) in perfused isolated rat lungs were studied. The results showed that… Expand
Detection of human cytomegalovirus in the atherosclerotic cerebral arteries in Han population in China.
The association of atherosclerosis (AS) and Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection was studied. AS plays an important role in the brain stroke and HCMV infection is supposed to be involved in the… Expand
Both hypoxic endothelial cell conditioned medium and hypoxia elevate intracellular free calcium in pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells.
By using Ca(2+)-sensitive fluorescent probe, Fura- 2, the effects of endothelial cell-conditioned medium and hypoxia on intracellular free calcium ([Ca2+]i) in cultured pulmonary artery smooth muscle… Expand
Effects of acute ingestion of ethanol on hemodynamics and hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction in dogs--role of leukotrienes.
The effects of acute intragastric administration of ethanol on hemodynamics and hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction were studied in spontaneously breathing dogs. The dogs were given 0.5 g/kg of 10%… Expand
