Resumen

The endothelial layer was removed from the isolated mesenteric vascular bed of the rat by perfusion with hypotonic Tyrode solution for 12.5 min. This procedure damaged more than 95% of the endothelial cells. After endothelial removal, the response to norepinephrine was significantly enhanced, whereas the relaxation induced by acetylcholine (ACh) was completely abolished. The results of this work show that perfusion with hypotonic solutions provides a reliable method of endothelial removal in isolated perfused vascular beds, allowing the study of endothelial-dependent vascular responses.
