Hypotensive and Vasorelaxant Effects of Sericin-Derived Oligopeptides in Rats

Figure 2

Vasorelaxant effects of oligopeptides on the contraction induced by PE (a) and 80 mM KCl (b) in endothelium-intact and -denuded aortic rings. The results are expressed as mean ± SEM; ; ** ; and *** compared with endothelium-intact rings. +Endo = endothelium-intact rings, and −Endo = endothelium-denuded rings.
