"Healthy vessels secrete EDRF
to balance the constricting effect of [epinephrine]," Yeung says.
But "match funding" has to be found from Government or business for EDRF
money to be spent, which is a major issue given the coalition's plans to slash public spending to cut Britain's deficit.
It is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund (EDRF
) through the Ireland Wales Programme (INTERREG 4A).
These were the preliminary findings of Shared Intelligence Ltd, the Cardiff consultants undertaking a feasibility study, funded by EDRF
Objective 1, for the Darwin Centre.
New Objective 1 programmes can potentially be funded by the ERDFF, the EAGGF, the ESF or the FIFG (Financial Instrument for Fisheries Guidance) and Objective 2 programmes by the EDRF
or the ESF.
Nitric oxide is a biogenic messenger--an endothelial-derived relaxing factor (EDRF
Endothelium-derived NO or a closely-related molecule was initially described as endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF
Late last year, scientists reported on the activity of endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF
), which prevents constriction of blood vessels (SN: 11/28/87, p.342).
Due to muscarinic receptors, ECs became famous in 1980 as the site for generation of endothelium-dependent relaxing factor (EDRF
, later revealed to be nitric oxide) .
