Description/Abstract

(1) The rate of NO release from endothelial cells increases when flow is enhanced. (2) Endothelial cells possess a high capacity for NO production, permitting a rapid adjustment of NO release to changes in flow. (3) The rate of NO release is not causally related to changes in perfusion pressure.
