07/01/2009 - "EDHF was likely the sole mediator responsible for the direct effects of LPC on U-46619-vasoconstriction, whereas the augmented vasoconstrictor responses following LPC washout may in part be related to an increase in ET-1, and a striking reduction in the bioavailability of NO. Our data suggest that in addition to reducing the accumulation of LPC to prevent ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) damage, efforts targeting an improved endothelium-dependent regulation of vascular tone could be an attractive approach to limit the cardiac damage induced by I/R."
01/01/2014 - "Pharmacological modulation of these channels during ischemia-reperfusion and hyperkalemic exposure show promising results on the preservation of NO and EDHF-mediated endothelial function, which suggests the potential of targeting endothelial K(+) and TRP channels for myocardial protection during cardiac surgery. "
01/01/2014 - "Hyperkalemic exposure and concurrent ischemia-reperfusion during cardioplegic intervention compromise NO and EDHF-mediated function and the impairment involves alterations of K(+) channels, that is, KATP and KCa, and Ca(2+)-permeable TRP channels in endothelial cells. "
04/01/2009 - "The preservation of EDHF responsiveness of PA after ischemia and reperfusion suggests an important role for this vasodilator under conditions when NOS is inhibited."
04/01/2009 - "The role of SK(Ca) and IK(Ca) channels in myogenic tone and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) responsiveness was investigated under control conditions and after ischemia and reperfusion in parenchymal arterioles (PA) versus middle cerebral arteries (MCA). "
