Term Information [More information on artery smooth muscle contraction]

Accession
GO:0014824
Name
artery smooth muscle contraction
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
A process in which force is generated within smooth muscle tissue, resulting in a change in muscle geometry. This process occurs in the artery. Force generation involves a chemo-mechanical energy conversion step that is carried out by the actin/myosin complex activity, which generates force through ATP hydrolysis. The artery is a vessel carrying blood away from the heart. Source: GOC:mtg_muscle, MSH:D001158, MA:0000708
