Sex difference in the development of deoxycorticosterone-salt hypertension in the rat.
Although vasopressin plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of DOC-salt hypertension, the sexual dimorphism in this form of hypertension cannot be attributed to differences in the secretion, metabolism, or plasma concentration of vasoppressin. Expand
Vasopressin release in male and female rats: effects of gonadectomy and treatment with gonadal steroid hormones.
Compared to intact male rats, the lower PADH in intact female rats was accompanied by lower urine osmolality and greater urine volume, but further study will be required to appreciate fully the physiological significance of the differing P ADH in males and females. Expand
Gonadal hormones modulate deoxycorticosterone-salt hypertension in male and female rats.
The findings demonstrate that the gonadal steroid hormones play an important role in modulating the pathogenesis of DOC-salt hypertension in the rat, and it is suggested that the effects of the Gonadal hormones on the course of the hypertension may be due to modulation of the cardiovascular and renal actions of vasopressin.

Sexual dimorphism in vasopressin-induced contraction of rat aorta.
Vascular reactivity to VP in thoracic aortas of male rats and female rats during each phase of the estrous cycle was examined to explore the role of the vasculature in this phenomenon. Expand
Estradiol attenuates the antidiuretic action of vasopressin in ovariectomized rats.
It is suggested that it is estrogen, but not progesterone, that reduces the antidiuretic response to vasopressin in the female rat. Expand
The Importance of Vasopressin in the Development and Maintenance of DOC‐Salt Hypertension in the Rat
It is concluded that vasopressin plays a major role as a pressor agent in both the onset and maintenance of DOC-salt hypertension. Expand
The Influence of Erythrocyte Concentration upon the Pressure‐Flow Relationships in the Dog's Hind Limb
Since alterations in cell-plasma ratios are of paramount importance in the assessment of peripheral resistance, a study of pressure-flow relations was made in which blood having wide hematocritExpand
Evidence that nitric oxide can act centrally to stimulate vasopressin release.
NO can act centrally to stimulate vasoppressin release and may serve as a neuromodulator in the control of vasopressin release. Expand
