This study was designed to test the hypothesis that increased pressure itself could cause endothelial dysfunction and lead to decreased nitric oxide (NO) release, partly through effects on the tissue renin angiotensin system in hypertension. Cultured endothelial cells (ECs) isolated from the aortas of WKY rats were continuously exposed to a pressure of 150(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the effect of angiotensin type-1 receptor blockade (ARB) on augmented vasoconstrictive response to endothelin-1 (ET-1) in coronary vessels of hypertensive hearts with angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, candesartan cilexetil (CAN) or enalapril was administered for 3 weeks in spontaneously(More)
The rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) is known to be a major center regulating sympathetic and cardiovascular activities. A possible association between neurovascular compression of the RVLM and essential hypertension has been indicated. The present study was performed to determine the role of angiotensin II (AngII) in the pressor and sympathetic(More)
