Increased arginase activity has been reported in a variety of disease conditions characterized by vascular dysfunction. In the present study, the potentially protective effect of arginase inhibition against the hypertension associated with diabetes has been investigated. Diabetes was induced by streptozotocin while arginase inhibitors; citrulline, norvaline(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We have previously shown that arginase inhibition alleviates hypertension associated with in a diabetic animal model. Here, we investigated the protective effect of arginase inhibition on hypertension in metabolic syndrome. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH Metabolic syndrome was induced in rats by administration of fructose (10% in drinking(More)
