Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The dietary metabolite quercetin has been reported to possess vascular protective effects and induce vasodilatation however the mechanisms by which this flavonoid induces such actions are not entirely clear. We aimed to characterise the effects of quercetin in the isolated aorta of the rat.
