Experiments were designed to determine the contribution of endothelial cells to the heterogeneous behavior of the arterial and venous wall. Rings of canine femoral, pulmonary, saphenous, and splenic arteries and veins, with and without endothelium, were mounted for isometric tension recording in Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate solution. Endothelium-dependent inhibitory responses to acetylcholine, adenosine triphosphate, bovine thrombin, and arachidonic acid were prominent in the arteries. In the veins… CONTINUE READING
