Abstract

Isolated resistance vessels in the rabbit ear preconstricted with histamine were relaxed by acetylcholine by a proportionately greater amount than in the central ear artery. The relaxation was antagonized by atropine and also by endothelium removal. Our studies represent the first evidence that endothelium-dependent dilation can occur in resistance vessels.
