Abstract

Nitric oxide (NO) is a simple molecule, highly conserved across species with important effects on several physiological mechanisms. In the cardiovascular system, NO is tonically released by the endothelial cells in response to shear stress to maintain vascular tone. This effect is due to the relaxation of the vascular smooth muscle cells in the medium layer… (More)
