Abstract

JEFFREY M. GIDDAY Y-UN ZHU Departments of Neurology Neurological Surgery, Ophthalmology Biology Physiology, Washington University School of Medicine, Gidday, Jeffrey M., Yun Zhu. does not mediate auto of in newborn pig. Am. J. Physiol. 269 (Heart Circ. Physiol. 38): H1065-H1072, 1995.-Isoflurane-anesthetized newborn pigs were used to test the hypothesis that mediates autoregulatory dilations of arterioles. Fundus images were monitored by videomicroscopy at x 310, stimulus-induced changes in arteriolar diameter were measured by on-line image analysis. Dilatative responses to systemic hypoxia (arterial O2 tension 20-30 mmHg), hypotension (mean arterial pressure 40 mmHg), or hypercapnia (arterial COZ tension 70-85 mmHg) were assessed after intravitreal microsuffusion of the synthase inhibitor NG-monomethyl-Larginine (L-NMMA) over the observed arterioles. Twenty-five nanomoles L-NMMA constricted arterioles by 24 2 2% (P < 0.01; n = 17 pigs); a significant constriction (14 * 2%) was still observed 80 min after drug administration (n = 5).
