Role of hydrogen peroxide in ACh-induced dilation of human submucosal intestinal microvessels.

Abstract

The endothelium plays an important role in maintaining vascular homeostasis by synthesizing and releasing several mediators of vasodilation, which include prostacyclin (PGI(2)), nitric oxide, and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF). We have recently defined the role of nitric oxide and PGI(2) in the dilation of submucosal intestinal arterioles… (More)
