Involvement of myoendothelial gap junctions in the actions of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor

Sandow, Shaun L; Tare, Marianne; Coleman, Harold; Hill, Caryl; Parkington, Helena

Description

The nature of the vasodilator endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) is controversial, putatively involving diffusible factors and/or electrotonic spread of hyperpolarization generated in the endothelium via myoendothelial gap junctions (MEGJs). In this study, we investigated the relationship between the existence of MEGJs, endothelial cell (EC) hyperpolarization, and EDHF-attributed smooth muscle cell (SMC) hyperpolarization in two different arteries: the rat mesenteric artery,...[Show more]
