Scaffolding builds to reduce blood pressure.

Abstract

Endothelial cells provide vasodilator signals to reduce blood pressure. In the small resistance arteries and arterioles, which determine the distribution and pressure of blood, the major signal is hyperpolarization reflecting the endothelial activity of calcium-activated potassium channels (KCa). In this issue of Science Signaling, Sonkusare et al. report… (More)
