Characterization of the vasodilatatory response to serotonin in human umbilical arteries perfused in vitro. The influence of the endothelium.

Abstract

In most preparations of human cord arteries perfused in vitro, infusion of 10(-7) M of serotonin leads to a biphasic pressure response starting with a transient minor vasodilatation followed by a dominant vasoconstriction. In some preparations, however, the vasoconstrictive part of the response with this dose of serotonin is less pronounced or completely… (More)
