Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is an endogenous mediator with peripheral vasorelaxant effects; however, the mechanism of H2S-induced vasorelaxation in cerebral blood vessels has not been extensively studied. Vasorelaxation studies were performed on middle cerebral arteries from male Sprague Dawley rats using wire myography. Immunofluorescence staining was used to(More)
Hydrogen sulfide is a novel mediator with the unique properties of a gasotransmitter and many and varied physiological effects. Included in these effects are a number of cardiovascular effects that are proving beneficial to vascular health. Specifically, H2S can elicit vasorelaxation, prevention of inflammation and leukocyte adhesion, anti-proliferative(More)
Hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) is now recognized as an important signaling molecule and has been shown to have vasodilator and cardio-protectant effects. More recently it has been suggested that H(2)S may also act within the brain to reduce blood pressure (BP). In the present study we have demonstrated the presence of the H(2)S-producing enzyme,(More)
