Although experimental evidence supports peripheral osmoreceptor modulation of arginine vasopressin (AVP) release, a local osmotic signal required for osmoreceptor activation has yet to be identified using physiological sodium loads. Additionally, the central pathway involved in peripheral control of AVP has not been clearly established. Experiments were(More)
We have recently reported that an acute intragastric hypertonic saline load increases plasma arginine vasopressin (PAVP) and Fos immunoreactivity in several central nuclei, including the supraoptic nucleus (SON), paraventricular nucleus (PVN), nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS), area postrema (AP), and lateral parabrachial nucleus (LPBN). We hypothesized(More)

We have also shown that these responses are mediated by(More)
See related article, pp 435– 441 H ypertension significantly contributes to cardiovascular disease, renal dysfunction and stroke, and it greatly enhances diabetes-related morbidity and mortality. Despite these significant interactions, research has yet to fully elucidate the underlying mechanisms. Elevated sympathetic nervous system activity appears to(More)
The present study tested the long-term effects of dietary kudzu root extract supplementation on the regulation of arterial pressure, plasma glucose, and circulating cholesterol in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SP-SHR). Female SP-SHR were maintained for 2 months on a polyphenol-free diet, with or without the addition of 0.2% kudzu root(More)
