We have demonstrated previously that infusion of angiotensin II (AngII) into hyperlipidemic mice augments atherosclerosis and results in the formation of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). The purpose of this study was to determine the role of aldosterone in these AngII-induced vascular pathologies. Male apolipoprotein E-/- (apoE) mice were infused with(More)
Previous studies demonstrated that angiotensin II (ANG II) decreases body weight. This study examined whether ANG II regulates body weight through energy expenditure. Acute ANG II administration decreased oxygen consumption. To determine whether this effect was maintained, rats were infused with ANG II or saline for 14 days. Oxygen consumption was(More)
