The effect of indomethacin upon the responses of resistance and capacitance vessels to noradrenaline (NA) in working skeletal muscles of the dog's hind leg was investigated. Responses of the resistance and the capacitance vessels of NA (0,1-0,5 microgram/kg injected into the femoral artery--i.f.a) were reflected as the changes in peripheral vascular resistance and in tissue volume respectively, and determined during and following exercise before and after indomethacin (1-1,5 mg/kg i.f.a.). Muscular exercise was induced by sciatic nerve stimulation of 6 min duration. The results show that indomethacin potentiates constrictor effects of NA in both pre-and postcapillary sections of the muscular vascular bed during and following exercise. An augmentation of NA effects is significantly greater in the capacitance than in the resistance vessels. Potentiated constrictor responses to NA are also maintained longer in the capacitance than in the resistance segment during the postexercise period. The results suggest that endogenous prostaglandings are involved in a local vascular response to exercise within both pre-and postcapillary segments of the muscular vascular bed. Their role in the capacitance vessels of the limb may be related to ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.
