Location, Location, Location: Juxtaposed calcium-signaling microdomains as a novel model of the vascular smooth muscle myogenic response


Small arteries and arterioles constrict in response to increases in intraluminal pressure through a process called “myogenic tone” or the “myogenic response” (McCarron et al., 1989). Development of myogenic tone has profound physiological implications; it contributes substantially to regulation of systemic blood pressure, maintenance of capillary/tissue… (More)
