The aim of our study was to investigate the adaptation of the hypothalamic circulation to chronic nitric oxide (NO) deficiency in rats. Hypothalamic blood flow (HBF) remained unaltered during chronic oral administration of the NO synthase (NOS) inhibitor N(G)-nitro-l-arginine methyl ester (l-NAME, 1 mg/ml drinking water) although acute NOS blockade by(More)
The heme oxygenase (HO)-carbon monoxide pathway was earlier shown to increase hypothalamic blood flow after inhibition of nitric oxide synthesis in rats. We hypothesized that this effect is mediated by prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). Inhibition of constitutive HO activity decreased cerebral PGE2 production and simultaneously increased hypothalamic nitric oxide(More)
The contribution of vasodilator cyclooxygenase (COX) metabolites to the maintenance of the cerebrocortical blood flow (CBF) has been studied under physiological conditions and in nitric oxide (NO) deficiency. Inhibition of COX decreased resting CBF without changing arterial blood pressure. NO synthase blockade resulted in hypertension and CBF reduction as(More)
