    R J Johnson
    Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan, USA
    J Pharmacol Exp Ther 289:762-7. 1999
    ..In conclusion, smooth muscle in guinea pig mesenteric veins expresses ETA and ETB receptors coupled to contractile mechanisms. Activation of endothelial ETB receptors results in release of vasodilators, primarily nitric oxide...

    J Cardiovasc Pharmacol 37:187-95. 2001
    ..These data do not support the hypothesis that increased salt intake alters reactivity of veins to ET-1, NO, or prostanoids...

    Hypertension 35:464-9. 2000
    ..We conclude that venous smooth muscle tone is increased in DOCA-salt hypertension through the independent actions of both endogenous endothelin-1 acting on subtype A receptors and sympathetically mediated venoconstrictor activity...
