Dopamine (DA) alters renal hemodynamics, and DA receptors have been demonstrated in isolated glomeruli. To determine the glomerular cell type bearing DA receptors, we studied the effect of dopaminergic agonists and antagonists on adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) accumulation in rat glomerular mesangial and epithelial cells in culture. DA caused a(More)
In addition to preserving the permselectivity of the vascular wall and providing an antithrombogenic surface, the vascular endothelium contributes importantly to the regulation of vasomotor tone. Indeed, the endothelium participates in the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II; the enzymatic inactivation of several plasma constituents such as(More)
