OBJECTIVE Urocortin, a potent vasodilator, plays physiological or pathophysiological roles in the cardiovascular system. However, little is known about its action in human vascular tissues. The present study was designed to investigate the vascular effect of urocortin on human internal mammary artery (IMA) in vitro and the possible underlying mechanisms. METHODS Human IMA was obtained from patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. The isolated IMA rings were mounted in organ baths… CONTINUE READING
