OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether a high-salt diet causes retention of Na in Dahl rats. DESIGN To compare the whole-body and organ (liver, spleen, kidney, heart, lung, femur, submaxillary gland and muscle) Na contents in Dahl salt-sensitive rats and Dahl salt-resistant rats. METHODS Rats aged 6-10 weeks of both strains were fed a normal-salt (0.4% NaCl) or(More)
The role of postabsorptive mechanisms in long-term control of drinking behavior, Na+ balance, and arterial pressure was examined in Dahl salt-sensitive (DS) and salt-resistant (DR) rats. NaCl (0.15 M) was infused (0.5 ml/h) into either the inferior vena cava (IVC) or the portal vein (PV) for 7 days, and then 1.5 M NaCl was infused for 10 days. During 1.5 M(More)
Using a computer assisted telemetric system, we have re-examined the effect of sino-aortic denervation (SAD) on the changes in arterial blood pressure (AP) and heart rate (HR) during sleep in the rat suitably recovered from the operation. Eight 1 hourly polygraphic recordings were performed 4 weeks after the initial SAD surgery. In the SAD rats, the(More)
Role of the liver in long-term control of drinking behavior, Na ϩ balance, and arterial pressure in Dahl rats. Am. The role of postabsorptive mechanisms in long-term control of drinking behavior, Na ϩ balance, and arterial pressure was examined in Dahl salt-sensitive (DS) and salt-resistant (DR) rats. NaCl (0.15 M) was infused (0.5 ml/h) into either the(More)
