High sucrose intake in rats is associated with increased ACE2 and angiotensin-(1–7) levels in the adipose tissue
TLDR
Inucrose-fed rats, the rate of in vivo FA synthesis was associated with increased Ang-(1-7), protein expression of AT(1) and AT(2) receptors, ACE2, AGT, and gene expression of AGT although a reduction in ACE activity and in adipose Ang I and Ang II contents was observed. Expand
Perinatal salt restriction: a new pathway to programming adiposity indices in adult female Wistar rats.
TLDR
The adult offspring of dams fed the low-s salt diet, compared to those dams fed a normal-salt diet, presented the following: plasma leptin levels higher in males and lower in females; plasma renin activity higher in females but not in males; and no differences in body weight, mean arterial blood pressure or serum angiotensin-converting enzyme activity. Expand
Sympathetic and renin-angiotensin systems contribute to increased blood pressure in sucrose-fed rats.
TLDR
Findings suggest a specific renal renin-angiotensin-sympathetic activation as a potential mechanism for the cardiovascular changes in response to chronic sucrose feeding. Expand
Exposure to fine particulate matter in the air alters placental structure and the renin-angiotensin system
TLDR
Exposure to pollutants before and/or during pregnancy alters some characteristics of the placenta, indicating a possible impairment of trophoblast invasion and placental angiogenesis with possible consequences for the maternal-fetal interaction, such as a limitation of fetal nutrition and growth. Expand
Isolated total RNA and protein are preserved after thawing for more than twenty-four hours
TLDR
Isolated total RNA does not undergo degradation due to thawing for at least 24 hours, and it is recommended to isolate the total RNA as soon as possible after tissue collection, and the protein level is preserved in defrosted tissues. Expand
High maternal sodium intake alters sex-specific renal renin–angiotensin system components in newborn Wistar offspring
TLDR
The data presented herein showed that a maternal HSD during pregnancy induces low birth weight and a sex-specific response in the RAAS in offspring. Expand
