To investigate the effects of hypertension on the changes in gap junctions between vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) in the mesenteric artery (MA) of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). Whole-cell patch clamp, pressure myography, real-time quantitative reverse transcription PCR (qRT-PCR), western blot analysis and transmission electron microscopy(More)
OBJECTIVE This study compared Wistar rat with spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) on the electrophysiology and coupling force of the smooth muscle cells in the cerebral arteriolar segments and observe the influence of 18beta-glycyrrhetinic acid(18beta-GA) on the gap junctions between the arterial smooth muscle cells. METHODS The outer layer's connective(More)
The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of hypertension on the gap junctions between vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) in the cerebral arteries (CAs) of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). The functions of gap junctions in the CAs of VSMCs in SHRs and control normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats were studied using whole-cell patch(More)
PURPOSE Through a study of the molecular mechanism of the effect of resveratrol(RSV) on expression of TLR4 and inflammatory factors in gingival epithelial cells under high glucose environment, the therapeutic effect and molecular mechanism of resveratrol on periodontitis in patients with diabetes mellitus was investigated. METHODS Gingival epithelial(More)
