ARTICLE INFO Keywords: Aging Endothelial dysfunction Crotaegus Polyphenols Endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor Endothelium-derived nitric oxide Endothelium-derived contracting factors Oxidative stress ABSTRACT Aging is associated with a markedly increased incidence of cardiovascular diseases due, in part, to the development of vascular endothelial dysfunction.
Vascular endothelium regulates the underlying smooth muscle layer and vascular tone by release of endothelium-derived relaxing factors such as nitric oxide (NO), prostaglandins, and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) as well as vasoconstricting factors such as endothelin, superoxide (O2-), and thromboxane (25, 28-32).
2] and/or endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF).
Another vasodilator action of the endothelium is mediated by the release of substances-including nitric oxide, prostacyclin, and eicosatrienoic acid-that hyperpolarize smooth muscle by activating calcium-dependent potassium channels and are collectively referred to as endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factors (22).
These results suggest that the aqueous extract of MOO vasodilates via nitric oxide pathway with the possible involvement of prostacycline and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) pathways as well.
Together, these findings led us to conclude that HSE induces an endothelium-dependent vasodilation in rat mesenteric artery, by a mechanism dependent on NO, on the activation of potassium channels and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor release.
