Vasorelaxation of goat mesenteric artery is mediated by endothelial Na+-K+-ATPase

OBJECTIVE To examine the role of Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase and K(+) channels in mediating vasorelaxation in the superior mesenteric artery of Capra hircus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Goat superior mesenteric artery (GSMA) was cut into 1.5-2 mm circular rings and mounted in a thermostatically controlled (37°C ± 0.5°C) organ bath containing 20 ml of modified Krebs… CONTINUE READING
