The neuroprotective effect of the antioxidant flavonoid derivate di-tert-butylhydroxyphenyl is parallel to the preventive effect on post-ischemic Kir2.x impairment but not to post-ischemic endothelial dysfunction

In the rat model of transient cerebral ischemia induced by intraluminal occlusion of the middle cerebral artery, we investigated the respective roles of ischemia and reperfusion in endothelium-dependent relaxation and smooth muscle relaxation related to the inward rectifier potassium current (Kir2.x), using the Halpern arteriography technique and/or patch… CONTINUE READING
