[Effect of endothelium-derived nitric oxide and prostaglandins on the endothelium-dependent vascular refractoriness to angiotensin II in pregnant rabbits].


Recently we demonstrated that the vascular response to angiotensin II (A-II) was attenuated in an endothelium-dependent manner by using the isolated ring specimen iliac arteries of pregnant rabbits. In this paper we investigated the possibility that three vasoactive substances, thromboxane A2(TXA2), prostacyclin (PGI2), and endothelium-derived nitric oxide… (More)
