artery smooth muscle contraction Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description 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. (Gene Ontology, GO_0014824)
