Hereditary hypertriglyceridemic (hHTG) rats are characterized by increased blood pressure and impaired endothelium-dependent relaxation of conduit arteries. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of long-term (4 weeks) treatment of hHTG rats with three drugs which, according to their mechanism of action, may be able to modify the endothelial(More)
This review concerns the role of nitric oxide (NO) in the pathogenesis of different models of experimental hypertension (NO-deficient, genetic, salt-dependent), which are characterized by a wide range of etiology. Although the contribution of NO may vary between different models of hypertension, a unifying characteristic of these models is the presence of(More)
The purpose of the study was to confront the range of endothelial relaxation and neurogenic contraction of the thoracic aorta in fetuses (1 week before birth), puppies (1, 2, 4 and 6 weeks old), and in adult dogs. Isometric tension of aortic rings was monitored in organ bath. Acetylcholine-induced dose-dependent relaxation of aortic rings precontracted by(More)
It has been shown that endothelium-derived nitric oxide (NO) plays an important role in regulation of vascular tone in the prenatal and early postnatal period. The aim of this paper was to determine the reactivity and accompanying structural changes in thoracic aorta from 4-week-old spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and rats with hereditary(More)
The basic patterns of thyroid hormones [thyroxine (T4) and 3,3',5-triiodothyronine (T3)] and the T4 and T3 responses induced by thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) are reported in captive female barn owls (Tyto alba) during the non-breeding period. The main findings of the study, conducted on a total of 10 owls, are as follow: (1) The thyroid gland of barn(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the involvement of nitric oxide (NO) system damage in the deleterious effects of high-fructose intake in rats. Fructose was administered as 10% solution in drinking water to twelve-week-old male Wistar rats for the period of 8 weeks. Blood pressure was measured by tail-cuff plethysmography. After sacrificing the rats at(More)
