It has been reported that angiotensin II is specifically required for hypoxic vasoconstriction in rat lungs perfused with physiological salt solution. However, studies with other preparations indicate that angiotensin II does not play a necessary role in the mechanism of hypoxic vasoconstriction. In an attempt to resolve this disagreement I investigated in salt solution-perfused rat lungs whether vasoactive agents other than angiotensin II would induce hypoxic vasoconstriction, and, if so… CONTINUE READING
