Easy assessment of the vascular autonomic function

Blood vessels change their diameter to keep a stable blood flow. The diameter of the peripheral arteries is determined by contraction or relaxation of the vascular smooth muscle, by endothelium-dependent and autonomic nerve-dependent mechanisms. Vascular endothelial cells

Kv7 potassium channels’ subunit composition determines their physiological regulation in arterial smooth muscle cells

Arteries have the remarkable ability to adjust the amount and force of blood that flows through them. Such adjustments are made possible by contraction or relaxation of arterial smooth muscle cells (ASMCs) within the walls of the
