Ser-Tyr and Asn-Ala, vasorelaxing dipeptides found by comprehensive screening, reduce blood pressure via different age-dependent mechanisms

Figure 1. Vasorelaxing activity of dipeptide mixtures in a mesenteric artery isolated from spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) in the early or advanced stage. Common N-terminal (A) or C-terminal (B) dipeptides (1 uM) were mixed and vasorelaxing activities were measured. Values are mean (n = 2-3).
