Influence of the endothelium on contractile responses of arteries from diabetic rats.


Contractile responses of aortas and mesenteric arteries from control and 3 month streptozotocin-diabetic rats to alpha-adrenoceptor agonists were compared in the presence and absence of endothelium. In the presence of endothelium, responses of both arteries from diabetic animals to norepinephrine and methoxamine were enhanced compared to control, although… (More)
