Factors, fiction and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor
1. The principal mediators of vascular tone are neural, endothelial and physical stimuli that result in the initiation of dilator and constrictor responses to facilitate the control of blood pressure. Two primary vasodilatory stimuli produced by the endothelium are nitric oxide (NO) and prostaglandins. An additional endothelium-dependent vasodilatory mechanism is characterized as the hyperpolarization-mediated relaxation that remains after the inhibition of the synthesis of NO and...[Show more]
