  1. Vessel characteristics of normal energy (NE) and high energy (HE) offspring at three months of age. Resting tension is the amount of tension before preconstriction with PGF2α (30 μM). PGF tension corresponds to PGF2α induced tension before adding cumulative doses of BK and SNP. Data expressed as means ± standard errors. No significant differences were observed (α < 0.05).
