AbstractINTRODUCTION: Narirutin, a kind of flavanones, is abundant in citrus fruits. It has been shown to possess anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects. Its structural similarities, naringin and naringenin, were found to be vasoprotective. However, the vasoprotective effect of narirutin has not yet been reported. This study aimed to investigate the vasodilatory effect of narirutin. METHOD: Male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats (8-10 weeks old), spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) (36-40 weeks old) and the normotensive controls (Wistar-Kyoto rats; WKY) were used in this study. The mesenteric arteries and aortae were isolated for the measurement of isometric tension in relaxation and contraction studies, respectively. RESULTS: The results showed that narirutin caused a concentration-dependent dilation of mesenteric arteries ...
