Acetylcholine chloride induces aortic ring relaxation
By Chintan Koyani on 10/22/2018
Application: Species: Mouse

C57BL6 mice were administered with LPS (5 mg/kg) alone or in combination with Empagliflozin (1 µM) for 16 h. Afterwards mice were sacrificed and aortic rings were isolated. Norepinephrine pre-contracted rings were incubated with indicated (in Image) concentrations of Acetylcholine chloride (ACh) to follow endothelial relaxation.
