Title

In Vitro Shear Stress Responses of Endothelin-1 in African American and Caucasian HUVECs

Abstract

Higher levels of plasma Endothelin-1 (ET1), a potent vasoconstrictor, have been reported in African Americans (AA) when compared to Caucasians (CA). However, this racial difference has never been considered when investigating the endothelin system at the cell level.

PURPOSE: To determine the effects of laminar shear stress (LSS), which mimics the exercise shear stress on the endothelium, in vitro and the effects of aerobic exercise training on the endothelin system in vivo.
