In eNOS knockout mice skeletal muscle arteriolar dilation to acetylcholine is mediated by EDHF.


The mechanisms that account for acetylcholine (ACh)-induced responses of skeletal muscle arterioles of mice lacking endothelial nitric oxide (NO) synthase (eNOS-KO) were investigated. Isolated, cannulated, and pressurized arterioles of gracilis muscle from male eNOS-KO (74.1 +/- 2.3 microm) and wild-type (WT, 87.2 +/- 2.1 microm) mice developed spontaneous… (More)
