The direct vasorelaxing effects of CGA involves NOS, COX and EDHF pathways
In fact, EDHF has been reported to be up regulated after a variety of pathologic conditions when nitric oxide-mediated dilations have been attenuated.C15) Thus the up-regulation could be a possible answer to the raised RH response, only if it be equated to collective NO and EDHF activity.
Polyphenol-induced endothelium-dependent relaxations role of NO and EDHF. Adv Pharmacol.
By inhibiting NO and PN synthesis, it is assumed that the remaining dilatory response is attributable to EDHF [29].
Therefore our results suggest that the in vitro relaxation of sheep coronary arteries by testosterone, seems to be generally mediated via endothelium-dependent NO release and may involve other endothelial vasodilator factors (EDHF, prostaglandins etc).
On the other hand, etomidate (5-300 uM) inhibited the vasodilator response to endothelium-derived nitric oxide (EDNO) or endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) in isolated human renal arteries (15).
Brum e colaboradores (2004), caracterizam-se pela reducao da pressao arterial durante o periodo de recuperacao da atividade realizada, faz com que os valores pressoricos observados pos-exercicios permanecam inferiores aqueles medidos antes do exercicio, e pode-se dizer que alguns fatores contribuem para esta diminuicao como reducao da atividade simpatica e/ou aumento da atividade parassimpatica, maior producao de fatores relaxantes derivados do endotelio, como oxido nitrico (NO) e fator hiperpolarizante derivado do endotelio (EDHF), ou menor producao de fatores contrateis derivados do endotelio como a endotelina (Delbin, Moraes e Zanesco, 2004).
From endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) to angiogenesis: Epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) and cell signaling.
CYP2C9 is expressed in the endothelium and, via production of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF), may cause vasorelaxation as a result of hyperpolarization of vascular smooth muscle cells by activation of [Ca.sup.2+]-activated [K.sup.+] channels (6).
