Assessment of Airway Hyperresponsiveness in Murine Tracheal Rings. Methods Mol Biol. 2013;1032:257-69. doi: 10.1007/978-1-62703-496-8_20.
Isolated tracheal rings have often been used to directly measure the contractile output of airway smooth muscle (ASM). Here, we describe the method for excising murine tracheas, mounting tracheal rings in organ baths, and measuring the isometric forces generated by the ASM when […]
