BACKGROUND Temporal restriction of food availability entrains circadian behavioral and physiological rhythms in mammals by resetting peripheral oscillators. This entrainment underlies the activity of a timing system, different from the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN), known as the food entrainable oscillator (FEO). So far, the precise anatomical location of(More)
Angiotensin (ANG) II can be associated with gene expression regulation. Thus we studied the possible role of ANG II in the regulation of AT(2) mRNA and protein expression. We utilized sham-operated renal ablation rats as well as renal ablation rats pretreated during the first 7 days of the development of renal damage with either the angiotensin-converting(More)
Glucose uptake is increased in hypertension. Thus we investigated Na+-glucose cotransporter (SGLT2) activity and expression in proximal tubules from renovascular hypertensive rats. Sham-operated rats, aortic coarctation rats, and aortic coarctation rats treated with either ramipril (2.5 mg.kg-1.day-1 for 21 days) or losartan (10 mg.kg-1.day-1 for 21 days)(More)
