Vessel wall structure in feed arteries and their hierarchical ramifications were investigated in a rat skeletal muscle. Emphasis was placed on the transition of wall structure elements from the axillary and thoracodorsal arteries to the feeder arteries and the arcade and transverse arterioles forming the microcirculation of the spinotrapezius muscle.(More)
We previously demonstrated that the pulmonary vascular response to substance P (SP) increased in chronically hypoxic rats. This study explored the temporal increase in reactivity of the pulmonary vascular response to SP and its underlying mechanisms. First, young female Wistar rats were exposed to sea level (SL) or simulated high altitude (HA) for 15 h/day(More)
