Arterioles within the microcirculation control organ blood flow and represent the main peripheral resistance within the circulation. However, larger vessels with a diameter of more than 150 microm are mostly used to study vascular behavior. Although arterioles have features in common with these conducting vessels, they exhibit distinct properties and the contribution of different pathways to constriction or relaxation varies with vessel size. This is especially the case for endothelium… CONTINUE READING
