Angiotensin type 1A (AT(1A)) receptors are expressed within the rostral ventrolateral medulla, and microinjections of angiotensin II into this region increase sympathetic vasomotor tone. To determine the effect of sustained increases in AT(1A) receptor density or activity in rostral ventrolateral medulla, we used radiotelemetry to monitor blood pressure in(More)
Adenoviruses are being employed to induce transgene expression in the central nervous system in vivo. In these studies, the cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoter is commonly employed to drive expression of the transgene because of its strong, constitutive activity in a wide range of cell types. However, using this promoter, expression in neurons is variable, with(More)
