Kubis, N, Besnard, S, Silvestre, JS, Feletou, M, Huang, PL, Lévy, BI and Tedgui, A (2002) Decreased arteriolar density in endothelial nitric oxide synthase knockout mice is due to hypertension, not to the constitutive defect in endothelial nitric oxide synthase enzyme. J. Hypertens. 20:273-80


Hypertension in endothelial nitric oxide synthase knockout (eNOS-/-) mice is believed to be partly due to altered vasodilatation. However, nitric oxide (NO) is also known to play an important part in angiogenesis.
