Elastic fibres and vascular structure in hypertension.
Blood vessels are dynamic structures composed of cells and extracellular matrix (ECM), which are in continuous cross-talk with each other. Thus, cellular changes in phenotype or inExpand

Comparative expression analysis of the renin-angiotensin system components between white and brown perivascular adipose tissue.
Recent studies have demonstrated that the rat adipose tissue expresses some of the components necessary for the production of angiotensin II (Ang II) and the receptors mediating its actions. The aimExpand

Role of Elastin in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rat Small Mesenteric Artery Remodelling
Chronic hypertension is associated with resistance artery remodelling and mechanical alterations. However, the contribution of elastin has not been thoroughly studied. Our objective was to evaluateExpand

Perivascular Adipose Tissue and Mesenteric Vascular Function in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats
Objective—Perivascular adipose tissue of normotensive rats releases a transferable factor that induces relaxation by opening voltage-dependent K+ (Kv) channels. The relevance of these observations toExpand

Physical features, phenolic compounds, betalains and total antioxidant capacity of coloured quinoa seeds (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) from Peruvian Altiplano.
Physical features, bioactive compounds and total antioxidant capacity (TAC) of coloured quinoa varieties (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) from Peruvian Altiplano were studied. Quinoa seeds did not show aExpand

Norepinephrine-induced relaxations in rat aorta mediated by endothelial beta adrenoceptors. Impairment by ageing and hypertension.
The objective of the present work has been to analyze the influence of endothelium, ageing and hypertension in the norepinephrine (NE)-induced responses. For this purpose we used aortic rings fromExpand

Imbalance between Pro and Anti-Oxidant Mechanisms in Perivascular Adipose Tissue Aggravates Long-Term High-Fat Diet-Derived Endothelial Dysfunction
Background The hypothesis of this study is that long-term high-fat diets (HFD) induce perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) dysfunction characterized by a redox imbalance, which might contribute toExpand
