PURPOSE To determine whether the monkey central retinal artery is innervated by vasodilator nerves and to analyze the mechanism underlying the neurogenic response. 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 nitric oxide (NO) synthase immunoreactivity was determined histologically. RESULTS Transmural electrical… CONTINUE READING
