GO Term vasodilation

Name vasodilation
Exact Synonyms positive regulation of blood vessel size | vasodilatation
Definition An increase in the internal diameter of blood vessels, especially arterioles or capillaries, due to relaxation of smooth muscle cells that line the vessels, and usually resulting in a decrease in blood pressure.
Ontology Biological Process
