Parent Terms Term With Siblings Child Terms
logarithm of the concentration of norepinephrine at which the force of blood vessel contraction is half the maximum value 
negative logarithm of the molar concentration of norepinephrine at which the force of blood vessel contraction is half the maximum value 
norepinephrine-induced blood vessel contractile force expressed as percent of force at baseline 
norepinephrine-induced blood vessel contractile force expressed as percent of force of contraction to KCL 
A calculated measurement in which the difference between the contractile force of a blood vessel in response to a specified dosage of norepinephrine and the contractile force exerted by that vessel in response to a given concentration of potassium chloride, is divided by the potassium chloride contractile force measurement and the result expressed as a percentage. Norepinephrine is a catecholamine which can act as a neurotransmitter, a stress hormone and a vasoconstrictor.
