It is known that diabetes is associated with autonomic dysfunction; however, data about autonomic function in non-obese diabetic mice (NOD) remain scarce. We evaluated the autonomic profile of NOD mice. Female mice, 24-28 week old, were divided in two groups: NOD (n = 6) and control (n = 6, Swiss mice). NOD mice with glycemia ≥ 300 mg/dl were used.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) regulates normal blood pressure and fluid homeostasis through its action in the renin-angiotensin-system (RAS). Ace-/- mice are smaller in size, have low blood pressure and defective kidney structure and functions. All of these defects are cured by transgenic expression of somatic ACE (sACE) in vascular endothelial cells(More)
