    Abstract : Endothelin is a vasoactive peptide that exerts its effect through two receptors; the endothelin type A (ETA) and type B (ETB) receptor. The contractile ETA receptor is localized on smooth muscle cells in the vascular wall, while the ETB receptors are mainly situated on endothelial cells, mediating vasodilatation. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Nätverk av nervtrådar påvisades kring koronara artärer och vener från marsvin och människa. Medelst immunhistokemiska metoder demonstrerades olika signalsubstanser i anknytning till dessa nervtrådar och i olika delar av kärlväggen (endotelet, media, adventitia), och det påvisades hur vissa av dessa substanser var lokaliserade i samma vesikler av ovan nämnda nervtrådar.
