Effects of polysaccharide extract from XJEK on ACh-induced endothelium dependent relaxation. In a phenylephrine pre-contracted isolated mouse aortic ring preparation, administration of ACh induced notable endothelium-dependent relaxation in a dose-dependent manner, which was markedly lower in aorta isolated from L-NAME-induced hypertensive mice. A significant restoration of ACh-induced endothelium-dependent relaxation was observed in aorta isolated from polysaccharide-treated hypertensive mice. Data are presented as the mean ± SD (n = 10). **P < 0.01 vs. control group; #P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01 vs. model group
