Smooth muscle growth in the mature rat: role of sympathetic innervation.


The role of sympathetic innervation in maintaining smooth muscle structure and function was investigated in the mature rat. Superior tarsal muscle volume, smooth muscle cell nuclear size and packing density, and alpha-adrenoceptor-mediated contractions were assessed in Sprague-Dawley rats at 3 months of age, and in rats at 6 months of age in which one… (More)
