We tested the hypothesis that a conduction pathway intrinsic to the arteriolar wall possesses the properties necessary to coordinate vasomotor responses in the microcirculation. Acetylcholine (ACh) or norepinephrine (NE) was iontophoresed onto cheek pouch arterioles (15-35 microns diam) of pentobarbital-anesthetized hamsters, and diameter responses were observed using intravital video microscopy. ACh and NE induced vasodilation and vasoconstriction, respectively, that propagated both upstream… CONTINUE READING
