Incidence of Myoendothelial Gap Junctions in the Proximal and Distal Mesenteric Arteries of the Rat Is Suggestive of a Role in Endothelium-Derived Hyperpolarizing Factor - Mediated Responses
Although the chemical nature of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) remains elusive, electrophysiological evidence exists for electrical communication between smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells suggesting that electrotonic propagation of hyperpolarization may explain the failure to identify a single chemical factor as EDHF. Anatomical evidence for myoendothelial gap junctions, or the sites of electrical coupling, is, however, rare. In the present study, serial-section...[Show more]
