Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is the most potent vasoconstrictor molecule up to now identified. Endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells and epithelial cells of airways are able to produce this potent proinflammatory, secretagogues and bronchoconstrictors mediator also implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases of airways in human being. Some studies demonstrated the presence of endothelin-1 in respiratory apparatus of the horse and also that ET-1 cause bronchial contraction on bronchial rings of horses in vitro, especially in horse with respiratory disease.

Abstract

Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is the most potent vasoconstrictor molecule up to now identified. Endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells and epithelial cells of airways are able to produce this potent proinflammatory, secretagogues and bronchoconstrictors mediator also implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases of airways in human being. Some studies demonstrated the presence of endothelin-1 in respiratory apparatus of the horse and also that ET-1 cause bronchial contraction on bronchial rings of horses in vitro, especially in horse with respiratory disease.
