Biophysical signals underlying myogenic responses in rat interlobular artery.


-To assess cellular mechanisms mediating myogenic responses of interlobular artery (ILA), experiments were performed with the use of isolated perfused hydronephrotic kidneys. ILAs were divided into 3 groups according to their basal diameters: proximal (>60 microm), intermediate (40 to 60 microm), and distal (<40 microm) ILAs. Myogenic responses were… (More)
