Vasomotor reactions upon focal stimulation of arterioles have been shown to be conducted along the vascular wall. Such a conduction, which is assumed to reflect the spread of electrical signals, may contribute to coordination of responses within a vascular segment. We aimed to identify which endothelial autacoid(s) act as mediators of the local and conducted dilator responses, respectively. To this end, arterioles in the hamster cremaster microcirculation were locally stimulated with… CONTINUE READING
