We performed experiments to test the hypothesis that endogenous adenosine acts as an essential cofactor required for eliciting angiotensin II (Ang II)-induced afferent and/or efferent arteriolar vasoconstriction. Enalaprilat (2 mg IV) was administered to anesthetized rats to reduce endogenous Ang II levels. Kidneys and blood were harvested from these animals and used for study of renal microvascular function using the in vitro blood-perfused juxtamedullary nephron technique. Arteriolar inside diameter was monitored videomicroscopically in (1) normal kidneys, (2) kidneys subjected to adenosine receptor blockade (100 mumol/L 1,3-dipropyl-8-p-sulfophenylxanthine), and (3) kidneys continuously exposed to 1 mumol/L adenosine. Under resting conditions, arteriolar diameters were similar in all three groups of kidneys, averaging 24.8 +/- 1.0 microns (n = 23) in afferent arterioles and 24.0 +/- 0.9 microns (n = 16) in efferent arterioles. In normal kidneys, adenosine (10 mumol/L) decreased both afferent ...
The major finding of the present study is that selective intrarenal nNOS inhibition by L-SMTC elicited marked decreases in renal hemodynamics and sodium excretory functions in normotensive rats and did not significantly influence renal function in Ang II-infused hypertensive rats. This finding is in a good agreement with the previous studies demonstrating an important role for nNOS in buffering TGF-mediated afferent arteriolar vasoconstriction in normotensive rats.9-11 In line with our finding is also the recent observation made by Ichihara et al13 employing the in vitro blood-perfused juxtamedullary nephron preparation that the decrease in afferent arteriolar diameter in response to L-SMTC administration was significantly less in Ang II-infused rats compared with control rats.. It has been also shown that nNOS activity, nNOS mRNA, and renin mRNA are increased in AT1A receptor gene and angiotensinogen gene knockout mice.18,19 In addition, studies evaluating the effects of sodium intake on renin, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Vascular Endothelium and Smooth Muscle Remodeling Accompanies Hypertrophy of Intestinal Arterioles in Streptozotocin Diabetic Rats. AU - Connors, Bret A.. AU - Bohlen, H.. AU - Evan, Andrew. PY - 1995/5. Y1 - 1995/5. N2 - The purpose of this study was to document alterations in endothelial and smooth muscle cell morphology of first- and second-order intestinal arterioles after 6 months of streptozotocin-induced diabetes. Both light and scanning electron microscopic techniques were used to quantitate the changes in the microvasculature. After rendering the first- and second-order intestinal arterioles passive and processing the vessels, it was determined that these microvessels were significantly dilated in the diabetic animals. Further examination revealed that in the diabetic animals, the cross-sectional area of the endothelial layer was increased in both 1A and 2A vessels, and the smooth muscle layer cross-sectional area was significantly increased in 1A vessels. Individual ...
Aims: To study the effect of an acute increase in the arterial blood pressure on the diameter response of retinal arterioles supplying areas with focal diabetic macular oedema before and after laser photocoagulation, and control arterioles supplying areas without oedema.. Methods: In 17 diabetic patients the diameter response of arterioles after an increase in the arterial blood pressure induced by isometric exercise was studied using the retinal vessel analyser (RVA). In each patient a study arteriole supplying a focal area of macular oedema as well as a control arteriole supplying a retinal area without retinopathy lesions was selected, and the diameter response of these vessels was performed immediately before, and 1 hour and 3 months after focal laser photocoagulation of the focal oedema area.. Results: The diameter response was impaired in both study arterioles and control arterioles before focal laser photocoagulation. The treatment induced regression of the focal retinal oedema, but did ...
Skeletal muscle arterioles dilate in response to application of acetylcholine (ACh), eliciting a conducted vasodilation (CVD) that travels along unbranched segments without decrement. CVD is known to entail cell-to-cell transmission of hyperpolarization along the endothelium via gap junction channels, a purely passive mechanism. In the present thesis I study CVD in bifurcating arteriolar networks, where the pathway for hyperpolarizing current expands compared to unbranched arterioles, to test for an active component to CVD. In a separate subset of arterioles, the effect of augmenting vasomotor tone on CVD was tested using elevated O2 or phenylephrine (PE) in the superfusion solution vs. control. Male C57BL/6 mice (n=13; 10-13 weeks old) were anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium (50mg/kg, intraperitoneal injection) and maintained at 37 [degrees]C. The cremaster was carefully exteriorized and spread onto a transparent Sylgard pedestal. The tissue was maintained at 34 [degrees]C with continuous ...
The present study is the first to demonstrate that Ang II activates differing Ca2+ entry mechanisms in afferent and efferent arterioles. Our findings are thus consistent with evolving concepts concerning the segmental heterogeneity of activation mechanisms within the renal microvasculature. In the afferent arteriole, Ang II stimulates Ca2+ influx via dihydropyridine-sensitive and voltage-activated L-type Ca2+ channels, an activating mechanism that is absent in the efferent arteriole. In the efferent arteriole, Ang II stimulates Ca2+ influx through a signaling pathway that is nifedipine-insensitive and is not voltage-activated. Store depletion with CPA activates a nifedipine-insensitive Ca2+ entry in efferent myocytes that has a sensitivity to SKF 96365 identical to that of the Ca2+ influx activated by Ang II in the intact arteriole. This store-operated Ca2+ entry mechanism is absent in the afferent arteriole.. Our findings agree with those of previous studies assessing renal microvascular ...
Purpose: : Hyperglycemia and oxidative stress are implicated in retinal vascular dysfunction associated with the development of diabetic retinopathy. Although retinal arterioles provide a major site of flow regulation, the temporal influence of hyperglycemia on retinal arteriolar reactivity and vascular oxidant production remains unclear. The development of a large animal model of diabetes relevant to the human retina for evaluation of vascular function is also lacking. Herein, we examined endothelium-dependent nitric oxide (NO)-mediated dilation and production of superoxide in retinal arterioles at various time points in a porcine model of type 1 diabetes. Methods: : Retinal arterioles (,100 µm) were isolated from streptozotocin-induced diabetic pigs (2, 6, 10 and 14 weeks of hyperglycemia, 477±43 mg/dL) and age-matched control pigs (63±14 mg/dL), and then cannulated and pressurized for in vitro study. Vascular diameter changes and superoxide production were monitored using videomicroscopic ...
Parenchymal arterioles (PAs) are high-resistance vessels in the brain that connect pial vessels to the microcirculation. We previously showed that PAs have increased vasoconstriction after ischemia and reperfusion that could increase perfusion defici
Flow-induced dilation of human coronary arterioles (HCA) is mediated by a unique mechanism involving the release of H2O2 from the mitochondria of endothelial cells and subsequent smooth muscle relaxation via K+-channel-dependent membrane hyperpolarization. The precise mechanisms by which H2O2 induces smooth muscle hyperpolarization remain largely undefined. An important mechanism of action of H2O2 involves the oxidation of key cysteine residues in its target proteins, including protein kinase G 1-alpha (PKG-1α). Here we hypothesize that H2O2 dilates HCA through direct oxidation and activation of PKG-1α leading to the subsequent opening of large-conductance Ca2+-activated K+ channels (BKCa) in smooth muscle cells. In isolated HCA, H2O2 (10−6−3×10−4 M) induced dose-dependent dilations in both endothelium-intact and -denuded vessels (relaxations at 10−4 M of 83.5±3.7% and 85.1±8.4%, respectively; n=4 - 6). The relaxations were largely abolished by iberiotoxin, a BKCa blocker (3.4±2.1% ...
We used a lung slice preparation to study the contractile responses of intrapulmonary arterioles and the underlying changes in [Ca2+]i in their SMCs during stimulation with 5-HT and KCl. For the same reasons that apply to the study of bronchial airways (Bergner and Sanderson, 2002a), thin lung slices are well suited for the study of arterioles. The arterioles are easily identified, have reproducible contractile responses and the intracellular Ca2+ responses of their SMCs can be correlated with the contraction of the arteriole. In addition, the small intrapulmonary arterioles, at sites that are considered to be important in pulmonary hypertension, can be examined. A major advantage of the lung slice is the ability to simultaneously compare the responses of arteriole SMCs to those of airway SMCs. This allows for the instant collection of control data and facilitates an understanding of the specific physiological responses of each SMC type.. Vasoconstriction of pulmonary arteries to 5-HT has been ...
It is typical in microvascular networks for smaller vessels to have lower linear blood velocities (38, 67). Application of a LEA instrument to vessels with velocities below Vcr = 2,100 μm/s creates a progressive Po2 underestimation from large arterioles to capillaries due to an increase in the accumulated oxygen consumption with the decrease in velocity. In addition, a LEA instrument depresses Po2 in the perivascular tissue (16), thereby creating a greater oxygen sink, which adds to the diffusional oxygen losses from arterioles and amplifies the apparent longitudinal Po2 gradient. Previous workers have concluded that this apparent longitudinal Po2 gradient found in precapillary arterioles is due to high oxygen losses from the arterioles, which led them to further conclude that arterioles are the main site of oxygen supply to the tissue (52-54, 56).. In the study of Tsai et al. (54), the longitudinal oxygen saturation drop in mesenteric arterioles with an average diameter of 23 μm was estimated ...

Renal preglomerular arterioles regulate vascular tone to ensure a large pressure gradient over short distances, a function that is extremely important for maintaining renal microcirculation. Regulation of renal microvascular tone is impaired in salt-sensitive (SS) hypertension-induced nephropathy, but the molecular mechanisms contributing to this impairment remain elusive. Here, we assessed the contribution of the SH2 adaptor protein p66Shc (encoded by Shc1) in regulating renal vascular tone and the development of renal vascular dysfunction associated with hypertension-induced nephropathy. We generated a panel of mutant rat strains in which specific modifications of Shc1 were introduced into the Dahl SS rats. In SS rats, overexpression of p66Shc was linked to increased renal damage. Conversely, deletion of p66Shc from these rats restored the myogenic responsiveness of renal preglomerular arterioles ex vivo and promoted cellular contraction in primary vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) that were ...
We have formulated a mathematical model for the rat afferent arteriole (AA). Our model consists of a series of arteriolar smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells, each of which represents ion transport, cell membrane potential, and gap junction coupling. Cellular contraction and wall mechanics are also represented for the smooth muscle cells. Blood flow through the AA lumen is described by Poiseuille flow. The AA models representation of the myogenic response is based on the hypothesis that changes in hydrostatic pressure induce changes in the activity of nonselective cation channels. The resulting changes in membrane potential then affect calcium influx through changes in the activity of the voltage-gated calcium channels, so that vessel diameter decreases with increasing pressure values. With this configuration, the model AA maintains roughly stable renal blood flow within a physiologic range of blood flow pressure. Model simulation of vasoconstriction initiated from local stimulation also ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Preserved coronary arteriolar dilatation in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. T2 - Implications for reactive oxygen species. AU - Bagi, Zsolt. AU - Feher, Attila. AU - Beleznai, Timea. PY - 2009/1/1. Y1 - 2009/1/1. N2 - Type 2 diabetes mellitus is associated with clustering of cardiovascular risk factors that may greatly increase individuals risk of developing coronary artery disease. Type 2 diabetes is believed to impair coronary function. However, its impact on the vasomotor function of coronary resistance vessels in humans is still debated. Reduced, preserved or even augmented dilations of coronary arterioles have been reported in subjects with type 2 diabetes. Interestingly, recent studies have suggested that reactive oxygen species (ROS), particularly hydrogen peroxide, may compensate for the loss of the vasodilatory function of coronary microvessels during disease development. Recent interventional clinical trials have yielded largely negative results, and there has ...
Aging with oxidant stress is a major risk factor of coronary artery disease, however the underlying mechanisms have not been fully defined. Senescence marker protein 30 (SMP30) has been identified as an aging marker molecule, which decreases with aging and SMP 30 knock-out mice show a short life. To examine the effect of aging on coronary arterioles vasomotor tone, we measured endothelium-dependent (acetylcholine, ACh) and -independent vasodilation (sodium nitroprusside, SNP) of isolated, pressurized coronary arterioles (28±4 µm, diameter) from SMP30 KO and wild type (WT) mice. In SMP30 KO mice, ACh-induced vasoconstriction was appeared, which changed vasodilation with dithiothreitol, thiol-reducing agent (DTT, 0.1 µM), but L-NAME (0.3 mM) or sepiapterin (1 µM), tetrahydrobiopterin mimic, did not change vascular responses to ACh. In WT mice, ACh-induced vasodilation was appeared which was blunted with L-NAME. Inhibition of glutathione reductase by 1, 3-bis (2-chloroethyl)-1-nitrosourea (80 ...
The activity of eNOS can be regulated in part at the post-translational level by acetylation of the enzyme. Accumulating evidence indicates that SIRT1-dependent deacetylation of lysine residues in the calmodulin-binding domain of eNOS leads to increased enzyme activity.41,81 The SIRT1 enzyme is a member of the sirtuin family of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-dependent deacetylases, which are involved in regulation of metabolism, stress responses, and senescence.82 In vitro studies have shown that blockade of SIRT1 diminishes endothelium-dependent relaxation of vasculatures.41,83 In addition, exposure of cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells to laminar shear stress has been shown to promote SIRT1-dependent eNOS deacetylation.81 The present findings underpin the notion that SIRT1 contributes to the transduction of a hemodynamic signal to NO-mediated vasodilation, because selective SIRT1 inhibitor EX52735,84 reduced retinal arteriolar dilation to increased flow. Support for the ...
Role of the Afferent and Efferent Arterioles The kidneys have an autoregulatory system to keep their blood flow and perfusion constant over a wide range of blood pressures. Unlike perfusion of all other organs, perfusion of the kidney is not regulated to maintain organ nutrition but to retain its filtration functions. The glomerular hydrostatic pressure is regulated mainly by the balance of vascular tone in the afferent and efferent arterioles. Owing to this exceptional arrangement of resistance vessels in series, before and after the glomerulus, renal blood flow (RBF) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) can be regulated independently.
We transplanted neonatal hamster renal tissue into a hamster check pouch chamber and subjected the renal tissue to increases and decreases in extravascular pressure. A decrease in extra-vascular pressure decreased, and an increase in extravascular pressure increased, the diameter of preglomerular arterioles. Thus, the change in preglomerular arteriolar diameter was directly related to alterations in extravascular pressure. Neither saralasin nor indomethacin affected these changes, whereas papaverin prevented them. The efferen arterioles responded passively to changes in extravascular pressure; i.e., the changes in their diameter were inversely related to changes in extravascular myogenic autoregulation of preglomerular vessels. ...
The efferent arteriole carries blood away from the glomerulus. Because it has a smaller diameter than the afferent arteriole, it creates some resistance to blood flow, producing the back-up of blood in the glomerulus which creates higher pressure in the glomerular cavity.. ...

What is the difference between Arteries and Arterioles? Arteries and arterioles are two types of blood vessels that mainly carry oxygenated blood. Arteries
10 μm) the PD cases have fewer capillaries in the RN and more small arterioles/veins (in the LC) with a significant reduction in the ratio of small/large vessels throughout all nuclei. The data suggest that vessel degeneration in PD cases is primarily at the level of capillaries, that may be more vulnerable to degeneration than the small arteries/veins, and/or to the enlarged capillaries as a result of vascular remodelling [6]. The transformation of the microvasculature from primarily capillaries to predominantly small arterioles/venules has a profound effect on oxygen diffusion. Arterioles (and venules) are much larger vessels with, on average, 3 layers of endothelial cells as well as smooth muscle cells and pericytes [7]. In normal tissue the majority of oxygen diffusion occurs from the capillary vessels consisting of only one layer of endothelial cells [7]. As a consequence of the loss of the capillary bed, tissues receive less oxygen leading to damage through processes such as the ...
Prostaglandin F2α constricted pial arterioles when locally applied to the cerebral surface. Norepinephrine and serotonin each elicited similar contractile effects. The constriction produced by F2α in combination with either biogenic amine was greater than the constriction elicited by F2α or amine acting alone. The effect of one agent on the other was additive rather than potentiating. Since F2α, norepinephrine and serotonin are all naturally occurring agents, it is possible that their combined effect is important under pathological circumstances and this combined effect should not be overlooked in the search for single spasmogens of great potency. Before ascribing a pathologically important effect to F2α, either alone or in combination, evidence is required showing that doses effective in experiments are similar to the concentrations occurring during disease states and/or that vessels may become hypersensitive to F2α during such states.. ...
A number of possible explanations may account for the differences between the effects of soluble and insoluble integrin ligands on Ca2+ channel current. An obvious possibility is that inhibition of current by soluble FN may be mediated by competitive antagonism of existing integrin- matrix interactions, as suggested for other systems (Poole and Watson, 1995). This would require constitutive phosphorylation of the channel through an integrin-dependent pathway. Indeed, the L-type calcium channel in vascular smooth muscle has been shown to require tyrosine phosphorylation for normal function (Wijetunge et al., 1992; Wijetunge and Hughes, 1996), but whether integrins regulate this pathway is not known. If they do, then disruption of existing integrin-matrix interactions by soluble ligands would produce inhibition of current while clustering of receptors by insoluble ligands (Altieri et al., 1990; Schwartz, 1993), including antibodies (Miyamoto et al., 1995a), would produce enhancement of current. In ...
Diastolic BP rose and cardiac output diminished after 6 months of exercises training because of the increase in peripheral resistance of blood vessels in athletes. In result of the training, skeletal muscles became capable of a profound relaxation leading, in its turn, to development of the ability for marked constriction of skeletal muscles arterioles. After the exercises, the rigidity of femoral and tibial arteries decreased as the result of involvement of the artery walls smooth muscle cells into peripheral vasodilatation. The functional condition of the skeletal muscles arterioles seems to be the main factor affecting circulatory changes both during acute effect of exercise and after a prolonged training.
Now let us see how the above factors control the distribution of blood flow in physiological situations. The structures that normally have the largest changes in blood flow are the skin, the digestive tract and skeletal muscle.. SKIN: Blood flow to the skin is almost entirely for the purposes of thermoregulation. Very little of the total is required to support the metabolism of the skin cells. Heat is carried by the blood from inside the body to the skin, where it is lost to the atmosphere. Most heat is lost this way, with the only other significant loss of heat occurring through breathing. Sympathetic nerves control the skin arterioles for this purpose, with greater release of norepinephrine causing vasoconstriction. Since under neutral conditions there is some steady sympathetic activity to the skin, reduction of the sympathetic effects allows vasodilation. Unlike many structures, arterioles do not have the dual innervation by both sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves.. DIGESTIVE TRACT: As ...
Acute stroke induces a local inflammatory reaction causing leukocyte infiltration. Circulating monocytes are recruited to the ischemic brain and become tissue macrophages morphologically indistinguishable from reactive microglia. However, monocytes are a heterogeneous population of cells with different functions. Herein, we investigated the infiltration and fate of the monocyte subsets in a mouse model of focal brain ischemia by permanent occlusion of the distal portion of the middle cerebral artery. We separated two main subtypes of CD11bhi monocytes according to their expression of the surface markers Ly6C and CD43. Using adoptive transfer of reporter monocytes and monocyte depletion, we identified the pro-inflammatory Ly6ChiCD43loCCR2+ subset as the predominant monocytes recruited to the ischemic tissue. Monocytes were seen in the leptomeninges from where they entered the cortex along the penetrating arterioles. Four days post-ischemia, they had invaded the infarcted core, where they were often

The brain is critically dependent on the regulation of blood flow to nourish active neurons. One widely held hypothesis of blood flow regulation holds that active neurons stimulate Ca(2+) increases in glial cells, triggering glial release of vasodilating agents. This hypothesis has been challenged, as arteriole dilation can occur in the absence of glial Ca(2+) signaling. We address this controversy by imaging glial Ca(2+) signaling and vessel dilation in the mouse retina. We find that sensory stimulation results in Ca(2+) increases in the glial endfeet contacting capillaries, but not arterioles, and that capillary dilations often follow spontaneous Ca(2+) signaling. In IP3R2(-/-) mice, where glial Ca(2+) signaling is reduced, light-evoked capillary, but not arteriole, dilation is abolished. The results show that, independent of arterioles, capillaries actively dilate and regulate blood flow. Furthermore, the results demonstrate that glial Ca(2+) signaling regulates capillary but not arteriole ...

How does fresh arterial blood make its way through the vast web of tiny vessels in the brain to reach the hungriest neurons? Using live imaging in mice, two studies reveal new elements of neurovascular physiology that play a role. For one, arteriolar endothelial cells were covered with inlets called caveolae, which somehow dictated the dilation and contraction of the vessels. The other identified specialized sphincters that controlled the flow of blood from arterioles into downstream capillary beds.. ...

Blood enters the kidney through the blood vessel called afferent arteriole. The blood is under high pressure. Blood vessels start to bend and twist into and become the glomerulus. The blood then comes out through the blood vessel efferent arteriole in which the diameter of this vessel is smaller and more narrow than the afferent arterioles. The consequence of narrowed vessels is the increase of blood pressure. In other words, the blood pressure increases in the glomerulus. The blood has been filtered due to high pressure because of the smaller area of the blood vessel. The blood has been filtered through undergoing high pressure due to the narrowing glomerulus, which forces in plasma out from the blood into the Bowmans capsule ...
Blood pressure is determined by the force of the heart as it contracts (systole) and the resistance of the main arteries and smaller arteries (called arterioles) to blood ?ow. The other force is diastole or relax- ation. Healthy arterioles are muscular and highly elastic and stretch eas- ily as blood is pumped into them. Their ready squeezing action keeps blood moving. When the heart is pumping more blood, as during exer- cise, many of the arterioles expand to accommodate greater blood ?ow. Healthy arteries are also wide open, clear of any buildup or obstruction so that blood can ?ow freely. Diseased arteries lose their elasticity, and pressure rises.. ...

For anybody that missed the Golden Age of arcade games, its sometimes difficult to explain exactly the effect of walking into an arcade with a pocket full of quarters. Row after row of flickering screens. A symphony of beeps and boops competes with Foreigner and Duran Duran being pumped over some tinny speakers. Floors sticky with the residue of dropped Cokes. These palaces were an oasis for gamers -- a stopover escape from the bright world outside where you were not a brave knight, pilot of a space cruiser, or any number of animals that suddenly had the fate of the world hoisted upon on their shoulders. Arcades have largely been ripped from the pop culture landscape. There are a few mega-arcades left in the Gameworks or Dave & Busters chains. The resurgent Chuck E. Cheese offers a modest number of arcade cabinets amongst a sea of redemption games. And every once in a while, you happen upon a retro house that gets by on the strength of thirtysomething nostalgia.
