In the present study, we have investigated the possible changes in rat mesenteric artery vascular innervation function caused by chronic exposure to low doses of HgCl(2) (mercuric chloride), as well as the mechanisms involved. Rats were divided into two groups: (i) control, and (ii) HgCl(2)-treated rats (30 days; first dose, 4.6 μg/kg of body weight; subsequent dose, 0.07 μg·kg-1 of body weight·day-1, intramuscularly). Vasomotor response to EFS (electrical field stimulation), NA (noradrenaline… CONTINUE READING
