Name three factors that can cause release of vasodilators from endothelial cells
Name a stimulus for release of endothelin from endothelial cells ECs lining a blood vessel are damaged
Outline the mechanism of action of nitric oxide 1.Damage causes release of endothelin 2.Endothelin stimulates Gq-coupled endothelin receptors on vascular smooth muscle cells 3.Gq --> PLC --> IP3 --> cytosolic Ca2+ 4.Increased cytosolic Ca2+ stimulates smooth muscle contraction --> vasoconstriction
TRUE or FALSE: A compound that inhibits alpha-1 adrenergic receptors will most likely cause an increase pre-capillary resistance
TRUE or FALSE: A compound that stimulates nitric oxide release from endothelial cells causes vasoconstriction FALSE - vasodilation
TRUE or FALSE: An increase in systemic arterial pressure causes a sustained increase in blood flow to all tissues
TRUE or FALSE: The amount of blood flow to a tissue is independent of the metabolic demands of that tissue FALSE
TRUE or FALSE: Damaged endothelial cells are more likely to release compounds that will cause vasoconstriction at the injury site TRUE
TRUE or FALSE: The major determinant of blood flow to a capillary bed under normal physiologic conditions is the post-capillary resistance (Rpost)
TRUE or FALSE: The walls of capillaries are composed primarily of smooth muscle cells
TRUE or FALSE: As the metabolic demand of a tissue increases, blood flow to that tissue remains constant because of autoregulation
TRUE or FALSE: Angiogenesis is a pathological phenomenon that does not occur under normal physiologic conditions FALSE
TRUE or FALSE: Sildenafil is useful in the treatment of erectile dysfunction because it promotes the breakdown of cGMP FALSE - inhibits
TRUE or FALSE: During vasomotion, an increase in PO2 in a tissue stimulates vasodilation, while a subsequent decrease in tissue PO2 stimulates vasoconstriction FALSE – increase = vasoconstriction; decrease = vasodilation
TRUE or FALSE: Vasoconstriction of a blood vessel requires nervous stimulation FALSE
TRUE or FALSE: A vasodilator may act by inhibiting the activity of myosin light chain kinase in smooth muscle cells TRUE
TRUE or FALSE: Activation of VEGF receptors stimulates proliferation and migration of endothelial cells
TRUE or FALSE: Autoregulation is the result of sympathetic stimulation of vascular smooth muscle

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
