【Abstract】

<正>It is widely accepted that the vascular tone is mainly regulated by sympathetic adrenergic nerves via the release of neurotransmitter nprepinephrine (NE). We have demonstrated that the rat mesenteric artery has dense innervation of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-containing (CGRPergic) nerves, which release a transmitter CGRP to cause vasodilation. The rat mesenteric artery was also densely innervated by adrenergic nerves, which contain
