The effects of chronic hypoxia on the responses of rat large pulmonary arteries and veins to vasoactive agents have been examined. Endothelin-1-induced contractions of pulmonary arteries and pulmonary veins were reduced by chronic hypoxia. In contrast, chronic hypoxia augmented sarafotoxin 6c-induced contractile responses in pulmonary veins but not in… CONTINUE READING
