Testosterone and Cholesterol Vasodilation of Rat Aorta Involves L-Type Calcium Channel Inhibition
Vasorelaxant effect of testosterone and cholesterol on rat aorta. (a): Effect of cumulative concentrations of testosterone (1–100 M) on contractions elicited by KCl (60 Mm) and BAY (0.1 M). (b): Effect of cumulative concentrations of testosterone and cholesterol (1–100 M) on contractions elicited by KCl (60 mM). Control curve with the effect of the steroids solvent used (ethanol) is also shown. Each point represents the mean value and the vertical lines indicate SEM of at least 5 experiments. * versus testosterone effect on KCl contractions, Student's t-test.
