The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of NAD(P)H oxidase inhibitor - apocynin (4-hydroxy-3-methoxyacetophenone) on the increase of systolic blood pressure (SBP) in borderline (BHR) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Young 6-week-old male BHR (offspring of SHR dams and Wistar Kyoto sires) and SHR were treated with apocynin (30(More)
The imbalance between nitric oxide (NO) and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production appears to be a common feature of experimental and human hypertension. Previously, different antioxidants and/or scavengers of oxygen free radicals were shown to activate nitric oxide synthase (NO synthase, NOS) and to increase the expression of both endothelial and(More)
We aimed to analyze whether hypertension and changes in nitric oxide (NO) generation are associated with alterations of locomotor activity in rats. Male Wistar rats treated with an inhibitor of NO synthase, NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME, 40 mg/kg/day) for 6 weeks, control Wistar rats, spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR), and control Wistar(More)
