Hypertension in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) may involve lack of endothelial nitric oxide (NO), as suggested by reduced total NO synthase (NOS) in dialysis patients. One reason might be due to substrate deficiency. To test the hypothesis that uremia is a state of intracellular L-arginine deficiency, uremic plasma was obtained from dialysis patients, and(More)
Reduced nitric oxide synthesis by glomerular endothelial cells and increased proliferation of glomerular mesangial cells is associated with glomerular remodeling that leads to accelerated glomerulosclerosis. Estradiol induces nitric oxide synthesis and slows the progression of renal disease. Because the estradiol metabolites 2-hydroxyestradiol and(More)
