Training in rats adapts the portal vein to respond vigorously to sympathetic stimuli even when the animal is re-exposed to exercise. Moreover, changes in the exercise-induced effects of angiotensin II, a potent venoconstrictor agonist, in venous beds remain to be investigated. Therefore, the present study aimed to assess the effects of angiotensin II in the(More)
Physical exercise evokes an extensive circulatory redistribution. However, the influence of exercise upon the effects of sympathomimetic agonists in veins was not well studied. Thus, the present study aimed to determine whether a single bout of exercise modifies the effects of sympathomimetic agonists in veins and whether this exercise-induced modification(More)
1. Orchidectomy results in long-term testosterone deprivation similar to that observed in male clinical pathologies, such as hypogonadism and age-related reductions in plasma testosterone concentrations. Although the vascular effects of these sorts of hormone deprivations are known in arteries, they have not been studied to the same extent in veins. 2. The(More)
Norepinephrine (NE) responses are larger in renal and femoral veins compared to phenylephrine (PE). These differences may be due to the subtypes of adrenoceptor involved in these responses or to the involvement of local modulatory mechanisms. Therefore, the present study investigated in organ bath the adrenoceptor subtypes involved in the NE and PE(More)
