Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is implicated in several vascular diseases through endothelial dysfunction. Most of the research on CMV has focused on either congenital CMV infections or CMV disease in immunocompromised hosts; however, CMV has also been associated with vascular diseases in...
Effect of dietary nitrate on sympathetic vasoconstriction in resting and contracting skeletal muscleDownload
Dietary nitrate (NO3-) may increase nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability and alter the control of blood flow at rest and during exercise. This thesis investigated the effect of dietary NO3- supplementation on sympathetic mediated control of skeletal muscle blood flow in resting and contracting...
Skeletal Muscle Sympathetic Vasoconstrictor Control Following Short-Term Mild- and Heavy-Intensity Exercise TrainingDownload
The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the effects of short-term endurance exercise training (ET) on sympathetic vasoconstriction in resting and contracting skeletal muscle. To achieve these aims, rats were exercise trained on a motorized treadmill and an anesthetised whole animal in situ...
The effect of aerobic fitness on the cardiovascular and sympathetic nervous system response to physiological stress at rest and during dynamic exerciseDownload
A cardio-protective adaptation associated with aerobic fitness may be an attenuated sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and cardiovascular response to stress. The hypothesis that the cardiovascular and SNS responses to physiological stress at rest and during exercise would be a function of...
Βeta-adrenergic receptors and opposition of evoked sympathetic vasoconstriction: Effects of sex and exercise trainingDownload
Stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system evokes the release of neurotransmitters and produces vasoconstriction that is primarily mediated by the binding of norepinephrine (NE) to alpha-adrenergic receptors. However, NE may also bind to beta (β)-adrenergic receptors and produce vasodilation...
