Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) matches lung perfusion to ventilation, thus optimizing gas exchange. NADPH oxidase-related superoxide anion generation has been suggested as part of the signaling response to hypoxia. Because protein kinase (PK) C activation can occur during hypoxia and PKC activation is known to be critical for NADPH oxidase(More)
Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) is essential for matching lung perfusion with ventilation, thus optimizing pulmonary gas exchange. Preceding studies provided evidence for a role of both nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide/ H(2)O(2) formation in this vasoregulatory mechanism. Both agents might be operative via stimulation of guanylate cyclase with(More)
