DAG for GO:0014830id: GO:0014830

name: arteriole smooth muscle contraction
namespace: biological_process
def: "A process in which force is generated within smooth muscle tissue, resulting in a change in muscle geometry. This process occurs in the arteriole. Force generation involves a chemo-mechanical energy conversion step that is carried out by the actin/myosin complex activity, which generates force through ATP hydrolysis. The arteriole is the smallest division of the artery located between the muscular arteries and the capillaries." [GOC:mtg_muscle, MA:0000706, MSH:D001160]
