This study examines the effects of magnesium on vascular tone and reactivity in mesenteric resistance arteries from 17-week-old spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY). Third-order branches of mesenteric arteries were mounted in a pressurized flow chamber and studied with constant flow and transmural pressure. The mesenteric arteries were perfused extra- and intra-luminally with physiological salt solution containing a normal (1.2 mmol/L), high (4.8 mmol/L), or low (0… CONTINUE READING
