    A definition of the medical term "endothelin" is presented. Endothelin refers to a peptide released from the lining of blood vessels that causes blood vessels to constrict and blood pressure to increase. The definition is from the "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary," published by F.A. Davis...

    Endothelin, a 17-DKa peptide originally described as a potent vasoconstrictor, also stimulates the release of important regulators of glomerular hemodynamics such as atrial natriuretic factor and renin. In the present study we investigated the role of endothelin in the release of another potent...

    The occurrence and distribution of the regulatory peptide endothelin in normal and inflamed human dental pulp was studied by immunocytochemistry. Endothelial cells in both normal and inflamed pulp displayed endothelin-like immunoreactivity. Neither pulp cells nor dental nerves were...

    We hypothesized that acute volume expansion by saline infusion triggers the release of endothelin-1. Bolus intravenous saline infusion (8 mL/min) in six groups of conscious Wistar rats and spontaneously hypertensive rats did not change mean arterial pressure or heart rate (n = 8 to 12). At 1 min...
