About this book


This volume explores all aspects of vascular biochemistry and includes chapters that provide an understanding of vascular function with descriptions of tissue components present in the vascular wall as well as an exploration of the hemodynamic and metabolic activities associated with this function. In addition, some chapters explore the vasculature under conditions which mimic various disease states.

The information provided in this volume will provide new insights into the mechanisms that control vascular function as well as therapies designed to treat vascular disease.
