In vitro denervation of the portal vein and caudal artery of the rat.

Abstract

The effects of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) on the isolated portal vein and caudal artery of the rat were studied to investigate the possibility of producing in vitro adrenergic denervation of these blood vessels. Loss of nerve function was determined by field stimulation of the nerves, using short pulses, and by 3H-norepinephrine (NE) uptake. Addition of 6… (More)
