The densities of neuropeptide Y-containing nerve fibers and adrenergic nerve fibers were increased in the distal regions of mesenteric arteries of spontaneously hypertensive rats as compared with findings in Wistar-Kyoto rats. However, the densities of cholinergic nerve fibers, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide-containing, and… CONTINUE READING
