Methionine-loading rapidly impairs endothelial function, by mechanisms independent of endothelin-1: evidence for an association of fasting total homocysteine with plasma endothelin-1 levels. J Am Coll Nutr. 2008;27:379-86 pubmed..These findings suggest that despite its potential role in chronic homocysteinemia, ET-1 has a limited contribution to the development of endothelial dysfunction in acute, methionine-induced homocysteinemia in humans. ..
