Heme oxygenase (HO) and cytochrome P450 (P450)-derived epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) participate in vascular protection, and recent studies suggest these two systems are functionally linked. We examined the consequences of HO deficiency on P450-derived EETs with regard to body weight, adiposity, insulin resistance, blood pressure, and vascular function(More)
We have previously demonstrated that a stable synthetic analog of 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE), N-(20-hydroxyeicosa-5[Z],14[Z]-dienoyl)glycine (5,14-HEDGE), which mimics the effects of endogenously produced 20-HETE, prevents vascular hyporeactivity, hypotension, tachycardia, inflammation, and mortality in a rodent model of septic shock.

Kidney damage is markedly accelerated by high-salt (HS) intake in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP). Epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) are epoxygenase products of arachidonic acid which possess vasodepressor, natriuretic, and anti-inflammatory activities. We examined whether up-regulation (clofibrate) or inhibition(More)
