Enhanced histamine-mediated contraction of rabbit penile dorsal artery in diet-induced hypercholesterolemia.

Abstract

The present study was designed to establish whether penile dorsal arteries isolated from rabbits fed a high cholesterol diet show an enhanced contractile and/or impaired vasodilator response to histamine, and to characterize the histamine receptor subtype involved through in vitro isometric techniques. New Zealand White rabbits were fed a normal diet or a 1… (More)
