Bronchoconstriction and endogenous nitric oxide in isolated lungs of spontaneously hypertensive rats.


Bronchoconstrictor responses were measured in lungs isolated from spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) and normotensive rats, perfused via the airways. Lungs from SHRs were more responsive than lungs from normotensive rats to methacholine, 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), arachidonic acid or prostaglandin H(2).
