The damping coefficient for the temperature thermostat and pressure barostat was 1ps.
The temperature was controlled at 298 K or 453 K using the Andersen thermostat (49) and pressure was maintained around 1 atm using the Berendsen barostat (50).
Animals were administrated with test drugs, and after an equilibration period intrabag pressure was increased with 2-mmHg increments every 3 min, starting from the minimal distending pressure up to 16 mmHg without deflating the barostat bag at each pressure step.
