Term Detail
GO term:vasoconstriction
Synonym: negative regulation of blood vessel size
GO id:GO:0042310
Definition:A decrease in the diameter of blood vessels, especially arteries, due to constriction of smooth muscle cells that line the vessels, and usually causing an increase in blood pressure.
Number of paths to term: 4
