Suppression of baroreceptor discharge by endothelin at high carotid sinus pressure.


Endothelin is a potent vasoconstrictor peptide released from endothelial cells capable of producing marked and prolonged increases in arterial pressure. The purpose of this study was to determine whether endothelin alters the sensitivity of arterial baroreceptors. Multifiber baroreceptor activity was recorded from the vascularly isolated, endothelium… (More)
