Alpha2C-adrenoceptors play a prominent role in sympathetic constriction of porcine pulmonary arteries

Abstract

Enhanced pulmonary vasoconstriction in response to injuries of the central nervous system and hypoxia result in pulmonary edema due to increased sympathetic activation. This study aimed to characterize α2-adrenoceptor (AR)-mediated responses in porcine pulmonary arteries. α2-AR-mediated vasoconstriction was studied using a tissue bath protocol. α2-AR… (More)
