At birth, the transition to gas breathing requires the function of endothelial vasoactive agents. We investigated the function of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) in pulmonary artery (PA) vessels and endothelial cells isolated from fetal and young (4-wk) sheep. We found greater relaxations to the NOS activator A-23187 in 4-wk-old compared with fetal vessels and that the NOS inhibitor nitro-L-arginine blocked relaxations in both groups. Relaxations in 4-wk vessels were not blocked by an… CONTINUE READING
