  • Depletion of tissue thiols resulted in diminished vasorelaxation by nitroglycerin because nitric oxide could no longer be generated.

  • The investigators for the first time demonstrate a critical role of HSP-90 for nNOS-mediated vasorelaxation and furthermore, can provide evidence for this interaction being responsible in large parts for the well-accepted pronounced nNOS-dependent vasodilatation in portal hypertension.

  • Although HSP-90 has been shown to mediate in large parts the enhanced eNOS-dependent NO overproduction in the splanchnic circulation during portal hypertension, it is not clear what role HSP-90 plays in nNOS-mediated vasorelaxation in this scenario.

  • Accordingly, it has been previously shown that both glucocorticoids and oxidative stress inhibit prostacyclin production Postnatal treatment of pups with antioxidant vitamins alone or in combination with dexamethasone decreased NO-dependent vasodilator mechanisms, it almost abolished the contribution of EDHF to vasorelaxation, and it decreased femoral dilator reactivity to SNP.

  • Data in the present study show that postnatal dexamethasone treatment diminished the contractile response to potassium, it increased the contractile responsiveness to α-adrenergic and local vasoconstrictors, and it depressed endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation.
