Heterogeneity in the mechanisms of vasorelaxation to anandamide in resistance and conduit rat mesenteric arteries.

Abstract

1 In order to address mechanistic differences between arterial vessel types, we have compared the vasorelaxant actions of anandamide in resistance (G3) and conduit (G0) mesenteric arteries. 2 Anandamide produced concentration-dependent relaxations of pre-constricted G3 arteries with a maximal response that was significantly greater than seen in G0. 3 The… (More)
