Characterization of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor as a cytochrome P450-derived arachidonic acid metabolite in mammals.
As the endothelium was strongly involved in the relaxant effects of CGA, the role of the three main endothelial relaxing pathways namely NO-Synthase (NOS), cyclooxgenase (COX) and the endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factors (EDHF) was studied.
Vascular endothelium regulates the underlying smooth muscle layer and vascular tone by release of endothelium-derived relaxing factors such as nitric oxide (NO), prostaglandins, and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) as well as vasoconstricting factors such as endothelin, superoxide (O2-), and thromboxane (25, 28-32).
