Endothelial function in the perinatal period played a fundamental role in the autoregulation of vascular tone and a significant part in the formation of hypoxic brain damage.
Long viewed simply as carriers of oxygen, in the past two decades, red blood cells (RBCs) have received renewed attention for their potential 'erythrocrine' function; that is, the ability to influence their own distribution across the vasculature by participating in signaling pathways that result in the modulation of vascular tone, thus controlling blood flow to tissues with relatively greater or lesser need of oxygenation.
There is a general agreement that nitric oxide (NO) is involved in the regulation of pulmonary vascular tone.

2]S and NO generated from ZYZ-803 can cooperatively regulate vascular tone.
The neurovascular unit comprises three cells types: endothelial cells, which form the blood vessel (vascular) tube; smooth muscle cells, which cover the endothelial tube and control vascular tone; and autonomic neurons, which influence the smooth muscle's ability to contract and maintain vascular tone.
The function of the vascular endothelial cells are affected when the cells are damaged or activated which lead to the vascular tone and vascular inflammatory changes vulnerable plaque and thrombosis.
