Figure 3. Changes of the mean perfusion pressure (DMPP; mmHg) produced by increasing doses of phenylephrine in the whole tail (A), base (B), middle (C), and tail end (D) of the vascular bed from Wistar rats. Dose-response curves were constructed in preparations with intact endothelium before (CT) and 30 min after treatment with 100 µM L-NAME. Data are reported as means ± SEM for 5-7 experiments. The line between the curves CT and L-NAME represents the difference in pED50 or Emax. *P < 0.05, CT vs L-NAME, t-test, repeated measures.
