It has been shown that microcirculation is hypersensitized to endothelin1 (ET-1) following endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide [LPS]) treatment leading to an increased vasopressor response. This may be related in part to decreased activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) by ET-1. eNOS can also be uncoupled to produce superoxide (O2). This aberrant(More)
Growth retardation is the single most common deficit observed in infants exposed to ethanol in utero, and the molecular mechanisms responsible for this growth inhibition are a focus of ongoing research. Several lines of research have suggested that ethanol-induced changes in the adenylate cyclase-protein kinase cascade may be involved in this process. Using(More)
