      Catechin prevents severe dyslipidemia-associated changes in wall biomechanics of cerebral arteries in LDLr-/-:hApoB+/+ mice and improves cerebral blood flow

      Endothelial dysfunction and oxidative stress contribute to the atherosclerotic process that includes stiffening of large peripheral arteries. In contrast, we previously reported a paradoxical increase in cerebrovascular compliance in LDLr-/-: hApoB+/+ atherosclerotic (ATX) mice. We hypothesized that prevention of cerebral artery endothelial function with a chronic dietary antioxidant intake would normalize the changes in cerebral artery wall structure and biomechanics and prevent the decline in basal cerebral blood flow (CBF) associated with atherosclerosis. Three-month old ATX mice were treated, or not, for 3 months with the polyphenol (+)-catechin (CAT, 30 mg/kg/day) and compared to wild-type (WT) controls. In ...
