Aging differentially modifies sensitivity of nerve blood flow to vasocontractile agents (endothelin-1, noradrenaline and angiotensin II) in sciatic nerve.


This study examined the influence of the vaso-constricting agents (noradrenaline, endothelin-1 and angiotensin II) in Sprague-Dawley rats aged 2, 6 and 24 months by evaluating epineurial arteriolar vasoreactivity in response to superfused teat agents. Nerve blood flow (NBF) was measured using microelectrode H2 polarography. In 24-month-old rats, NBF was… (More)
