Hypoxia during pregnancy could affect development of fetuses as well as cardiovascular systems in the offspring. This study was the first to demonstrate the influence and related mechanisms of prenatal hypoxia (PH) on renal interlobar arteries (RIA) in the 5-month-old male rat offspring. Following chronic hypoxia during pregnancy, phenylephrine induced(More)
We recently demonstrated that acetylcholine (ACh) produced reliable vasoconstrictions in the umbilical cords. This study investigated the possible mechanisms with different antagonists. ACh-mediated vasoconstrictions were decreased by voltage-operated calcium (Ca(2+)) channels antagonist nifedipine or inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate-mediated Ca(2+) release(More)
