Haddock, Rebecca; Grayson, T. Hilton; Morris, Margaret J.; Howitt, Lauren; Chadha, Preet S; Sandow, Shaun L.

Description

BACKGROUND The vascular endothelium plays a critical role in the control of blood flow. Altered endothelium-mediated vasodilator and vasoconstrictor mechanisms underlie key aspects of cardiovascular disease, including those in obesity. Whilst the mechanism of nitric oxide (NO)-mediated vasodilation has been extensively studied in obesity, little is known about the impact of obesity on vasodilation to the endothelium-derived hyperpolarization (EDH) mechanism; which predominates in smaller...[Show more]
