High sucrose intake in rats is associated with increased ACE2 and angiotensin-(1–7) levels in the adipose tissue
Sucrose-fed rats, a model of metabolic syndrome, are characterized by insulin resistance, obesity, hypertension, and high plasma levels of triacylglycerols and angiotensin II (Ang II). However,Expand

Perinatal salt restriction: a new pathway to programming adiposity indices in adult female Wistar rats.
Low birth weight has been associated with increased obesity in adulthood. It has been shown that dietary salt restriction during intrauterine life induces low birth weight and insulin resistance inExpand

Sympathetic and renin-angiotensin systems contribute to increased blood pressure in sucrose-fed rats.
BACKGROUND This study evaluated the effect of chronic sucrose feeding on hemodynamic parameters and renal sympathetic nervous activity. In addition, angiotensin I, II, and 1-7 levels were determinedExpand

Exposure to fine particulate matter in the air alters placental structure and the renin-angiotensin system
Transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGFβ1), the uteroplacental renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) participate in the placentation process. The aim of thisExpand

Isolated total RNA and protein are preserved after thawing for more than twenty-four hours
OBJECTIVE: The preservation of biological samples at a low temperature is important for later biochemical and/or histological analyses. However, the molecular viability of thawed samples has not beenExpand

High maternal sodium intake alters sex-specific renal renin-angiotensin system components in newborn Wistar offspring.
This study aimed to evaluate the systemic and renal renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) at birth in male and female offspring and in mothers fed a high sodium diet (HSD) before and duringExpand

1 Pattern-non-pattern transition for a nonlocal population dynamics
In this paper we propose a most general equation to study pattern formation for one-species population and their limit domains in systems of length L [1]. To accomplish this we include nonlocality[2]Expand
