Vascular reactivity to vasoconstrictors in relation to altered thyroid function was studied in two preparations: aortic strips and the isolated perfused kidney. To assess whether the possible alterations in vascular reactivity were restricted to a specific agonist or whether they involved the contractile system, receptor-mediated and nonspecific smooth muscle stimulants were used. Male Wistar rats were divided into three groups: control, hyperthyroid and hypothyroid rats. Aortic strips from… CONTINUE READING
