Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are essential polysaccharide components of extracellular matrix and cell surface with key roles on numerous vascular wall functions. Previous studies have documented a role of wild blueberries on the GAG profile of the Sprague-Dawley rat with a functional endothelium as well as in the vascular tone of the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) with endothelial dysfunction. In the present study, the effect of wild blueberries on the composition and structure of aortic… CONTINUE READING
