It has been shown that intracerebroventricular injection of urotensin II (UII)-induced hypotensive and bradycardiac responses. Here, we tested the cardiovascular roles of UII in different brain areas by microinjection of UII into the A1 and A2 areas (noradrenergic cells found in the lower part of the medulla that have been designated either A1 or A2 areas),(More)
Proteinuria is a characteristic of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and also a causative factor that promotes the disease progression in part via activation of intrarenal renin-angiotensin system (RAS). (Pro) renin receptor (PRR), a newly discovered component of the RAS, binds renin and (pro) renin to promote angiotensin I generation. The present study was(More)
The effects of interleukin-1beta in the paraventricular nucleus or caudal arcuate nucleus on hypertensive and tachycardiac responses induced by excitation of the central amygdaloid nucleus were studied. We observed that microinjection of sodium glutamate into central amygdaloid nucleus resulted in hypertension and tachycardia. Microinjection of(More)
