We isolated DA and a segment of ascending aorta from preterm (97±0 days gestation) and near-term (136 ± 0.8 days) fetal sheep (full term = 145 days) and from 12±0 hours old newborn lambs (obtained from Pozzi Ranch, Valley Ford, CA)). Four animals (n=4) were used for each experimental group. At the time of experimental study, ewes and newborn lambs were euthanized with an overdose of the proprietary euthanasia solution Euthasol (pentobarbital sodium 100 mg.Kg-1 and phenytoin sodium 10 mg.Kg-1; Virbac, Ft. Worth, TX).
