Nitric oxide and endothelin relationship in intestinal ischemia/reperfusion injury.


Gastrointestinal mucosal blood flow is dependent on a balanced release of vasoactive substances from endothelium. Nitric oxide (NO) may increase the flow by vasodilatation and/or antiaggregation whereas endothelin (ET) may decrease it by vasoconstriction and aggregation. NO and ET may have counterbalancing effects on each other in tissue damage. In order to… (More)
