1. In the present study, we determined whether ETA receptors are present on endothelial cells in situ, by use of front-surface fluorometry of fura-2-loaded porcine aortic valvular strips and reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). 2. Although endothelin-1 (ET-1) and endothelin-3 (ET-3) induced maximum elevations of cytosolic Ca2… CONTINUE READING
