Electroacupuncture Delays Hypertension Development through Enhancing NO/NOS Activity in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats
(a) Representative western blot of eNOS and nNOS protein in mesenteric artery from WKY and SHR, either control, EA-treated at GV20 (SHR-GV20) or non-acupoint (SHR-tail) conditions. (b) Lower panel shows densitometric analysis of the western blot of eNOS and nNOS protein. Relative abundance of NOS protein compared with β-actin. Results are expressed as mean ± SEM for four rats in each group. Results are expressed as mean ± SEM for four rats in each group. *P < .05, compared with WKY group; †P < .05, compared with no-treated SHR group.
