Resistance-sized branches of posterior cerebral arteries from Wistar-Kyoto (WKY), spontaneously hypertensive (SHR), spontaneously hypertensive stroke-prone (SHRSP), and antihypertensive-treated SHRSP (SHRSP-TRT) rats were studied in vitro. After the rats were killed, arterial segments were excised, mounted on microcannulas, and pressurized. After equilibration, intravascular pressure was increased in a stepwise fashion from 30 to 150-200 mmHg. All vessels developed a myogenic tone, which… CONTINUE READING
