The functional orientation of vascular smooth muscle in the walls of aortae of DOCA-hypertensive and normotensive rats was determined by measuring the maximum force-generating capacity of strips cut at various angles from their aortae. The greatest tension produced by strips of aortae of either group was generated by strips cut perpendicular to the long axis of the artery. Strips of aortae from either group produced less tension if cut at different angles with respect to the circumferential… CONTINUE READING
