Abbreviations used are the same as in Fig. 1. The upper panels in (B) indicate representative photomicrographs of carotid arterial DHE staining. Bar = 200 µm. Each value represents the mean ± SEM ((A) n = 8 in Ve, n = 7 in Ol, n = 7 in Az, n = 4 in Hy, n = 7 in Ol+Az, n = 7 in Ol+Hy, n = 8 in WKY; (B) n = 12 in Ve, n = 7 in Ol, n = 7 in Az, n = 7 in Hy, n = 11 in Ol+Az, n = 11 in Ol+Hy, n = 12 in WKY).
