Secretory activity of the adrenal cortex and hormonal reaction to emotional stress were examined in normotensive WAG and hypertensive ISIAH rats. Under nembutal narcosis (surgical stage), secretion of corticosteroid hormones and hormonal reaction to acute stress in hypertensive rats were enhanced. In these rats, the stress-induced elevation of aldosterone(More)
The content of mRNA of renin-angiotensin system (RAS) genes in the kidney and heart of hypertensive ISIAH and normotensive WAG rats was measured by the real-time PCR. Statistically significant decrease of RAS gene mRNA was registered in the kidney of ISIAH rats, including Ren (by 45%), Ace (43%), AT1A (34%), COX-2 (50%). In the myocardium AT1A mRNA(More)
The concentration of soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) protein was studied in renal medulla of adult rats from hypertensive ISIAH strain and normotensive WAG strain. The sEH is a key enzyme in metabolism of epoxyeicosatrienoic acids capable of activating endothelial NO-synthase and nitrogen oxide formation, and therefore being vasodilators. An increase in the(More)
Animal domestication is a model of a rapid evolutionary process. In experimental fox domestication, the time required for the emergence and fixation of specific evolutionary changes was reduced from thousands to tens of years, compared to historical domestication. Tame foxes were obtained by extreme selective breeding for emotionally positive response(More)
Emotional stress plays a significant role in the processes of the development of arterial hypertension, especially in the presence of genetic predisposition. The origin and maintenance of hypertensive status during stress development can be activated by the sympathetic nervous system. An increase in sympathetic stimulation can, in turn, result in a change(More)
