To test the hypothesis that vasodilation occurs because of the release of a vasoactive substance after a brief muscle contraction and to determine whether acetylcholine spillover from the motor nerve is involved in contraction-induced hyperemia, tetanic muscle contractions were produced by sciatic nerve stimulation in anesthetized dogs (n = 16),(More)
We have previously shown that hydrogen sulfide (H₂S) reduces myogenic tone and causes relaxation of phenylephrine (PE)-constricted mesenteric arteries. This effect of H₂S to cause vasodilation and vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) hyperpolarization was mediated by large-conductance Ca(2+)-activated potassium channels (BKCa). Ca(2+) sparks are ryanodine(More)
Chronic hypoxia (CH) results in reduced sensitivity to vasoconstrictors in conscious rats that persists upon restoration of normoxia. We hypothesized that this effect is due to endothelium-dependent hyperpolarization of vascular smooth muscle (VSM) cells after CH. VSM cell resting membrane potential was determined for superior mesenteric artery strips(More)
Atrophic signaling elements of the ubiquitin–proteasome system (UPS) are involved in skeletal muscle wasting as well as pressure overload models of heart failure. In our prior experiments, we demonstrated a transcriptional downregulation of atrophy-inducing vascular E3 ubiquitin ligases in a toxic model of pulmonary hypertension where pulmonary artery and(More)
Software testing provides a means to minimize errors, cut maintenance and decrease overall software costs. Different software development and testing methodologies, tools, and techniques have emerged to enhance software quality. At each and every phase of software development life cycle testing is performed with different tools and techniques. One of the(More)
