BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE P2 receptors are important regulators of cerebrovascular tone. However, there is functional heterogeneity of P2Y receptors along the vascular tree, and the functionality of P2Y receptors in small arterioles has not been studied in detail. We investigated the effects of activating P2Y1 and P2Y2 receptors and their underlying dilator mechanisms in rat intracerebral arterioles. METHODS We used computer-aided videomicroscopy to measure diameter responses from isolated and… CONTINUE READING
