AIMS It is well known that low-intensity exercise training (ExT) is beneficial to cardiovascular dysfunction in hypertension. The tonically active glutamatergic input to the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM), a key region for control of blood pressure and sympathetic tone, has been demonstrated to be increased in hypertensive rats. The aim of this study(More)
OBJECTIVE Centrally acting antihypertensive action of moxonidine is a result of activation of Imidazoline-1 receptor (I1R) in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM). Hypertension shows an increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the RVLM. The present objective was to determine the phosphoinositide-3 kinase (PI3K) signaling pathway involved in the(More)
The imbalance between angiotensin II (Ang II) and angiotensin 1-7 (Ang 1-7) in the brain has been reported to contribute to cardiovascular dysfunction in hypertension. Exercise training (ExT) is beneficial to hypertension and the mechanism is unclear. This study was aimed to determine if ExT improves hypertension via adjusting renin angiotensin system in(More)
Angiotensin-1-7 [Ang-(1-7)], acting via the Mas receptor in the central nervous system, is involved in the regulation of cardiovascular activity. Nitric oxide (NO) is implicated as an important modulator in the nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS), a key region involved in control of cardiovascular activity. The aim of the present study was to determine the role(More)
