Endothelinergic Contractile Hyperreactivity in Rat Contralateral Carotid to Balloon Injury: Integrated Role for ETB Receptors and Superoxide Anion

Figure 2

Temporal consequences of balloon injury on endothelinergic functionality in ipsilateral or contralateral carotid rings isolated from operated rats at 2, 8, 16, 30, or 45 days after the surgery. (a) Cumulative concentration-response curves for ET-1 in endothelium-intact (E+) or endothelium-denuded (E−) carotid rings. (b) max values from ET-1-induced contraction in E+ or E− carotid rings. Significant difference () from E+ control carotid rings from the respective age-matched intact rat (). One-way ANOVA; Bonferroni post hoc test.
