Values (%) represent mean ± S.E.M. 1) anda) : p<0.05, 2) : p<0.01, 3) : p<0.001. Symbols of1), 2) and3) mean significant differences in comparison between the effects of quercetin itself at each concentration and the maximal constriction induced by NE. Symbol of a) indicates significant difference as compared with control (quercetin alone) values.
