Long-term culture of resistance vessels allows introduction of molecular biology techniques for use in microvascular research. The aim of the present study was to establish a culture protocol that preserved vascular integrity and function in microvessels for 48 h in culture. Skeletal muscle resistance arteries were excised from the hamster gracilis muscle. Segments were assigned to immediate functional tests or to vessel culture, during which segments were perfused and superfused at a… CONTINUE READING
