Capillary hydraulic conductivity is decreased by nitric oxide synthase inhibition.

Abstract

Nitric oxide (NO) has been reported to modulate microvascular permeability to solutes in whole organs, venules, and cultured endothelial cell monolayers. NO derived from L-arginine via NO synthase activates soluble guanylate cyclase in vascular smooth muscle and endothelial cells. While the effects of NO on capillary water permeability have not been… (More)
