Phenylephrine dose-response curves in mesenteric arteries of C57 and ApoE mice, 12 weeks after P gingivalis oral inoculation. A: Effect of atherosclerosis on vasoconstriction; B: Effects of oral infection on vascular contractile response in systemically healthy mice; C: Effects of oral infection on vascular contractile response in mice with atherosclerosis; D: Difference on vascular contractile response between animals systemically healthy and with atherosclerosis. Ct: control animals; Pg: infected animals. *p < 0.05.
