PURPOSE To determine whether nitroxidergic, cholinergic, and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)-mediated nerves participate in the regulation of porcine ciliary arterial tone and to analyze the mechanisms underlying the neuronal interaction. METHODS Changes in isometric tension were recorded in helical strips of the arteries, which were stimulated by transmurally applied electrical pulses or nicotine. The presence of perivascular nerve fibers containing reduced nicotinamide adenine… CONTINUE READING
