The endothelium-derived relaxing factors (EDRFs), which are predominant in healthy blood vessels and promote vascular protection, include nitric oxide (NO, Furchgott and Zawadzki 1980), endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF, Chen et al.
Endothelium produces potent vasodilators, such as endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF, NO), ptostacyclin and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF).
In the present work, we describe an endothelium-dependent vasodilator effect of HSE in superior mesenteric artery rings of rats, through a mechanism dependent on release of nitric oxide (NO) and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF).
