The aim of this study was to define the relationship between intraluminal pressure, intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i), and myosin light-chain (MLC) phosphorylation in isolated arterioles exhibiting myogenic tone. Cremaster muscles were removed from anesthetized rats, and arterioles (approximately 100-microns diam) were dissected from surrounding… CONTINUE READING
