Representation of cell types. Representation of cell types (by percentage) which (A) reported (n = 20 articles) and (B) did not report (n = 81) the sex of cells in 101 articles reviewed by the second search strategy. Some studies used more than one type of cell. (A) In studies reporting the sex of the cells, most used vascular smooth-muscle cells, whereas in studies that did not report the sex of cells, most used endothelial cells and vascular smooth-muscle cells.
