Dopamine plays an important role in the pathogenesis of hypertension by regulating epithelial sodium transport and by interacting with vasoactive hormones/humoral factors, such as aldosterone, angiotensin, catecholamines, endothelin, oxytocin, prolactin pro-opiomelancortin, reactive oxygen species, renin, and vasopressin. Dopamine receptors are classified(More)
The dopaminergic and renin-angiotensin systems interact to regulate blood pressure. Because this interaction may be perturbed in genetic hypertension, we studied D1 dopamine and AT1 angiotensin receptors in immortalized renal proximal tubule (RPT) and A10 aortic vascular smooth muscle cells. In normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats, the D1-like agonist(More)
The present study investigated the effect of dopamine D1-like receptor stimulation on the Cl-/HCO3- exchange activity in rat intestinal epithelial IEC-6 cells. The Cl-/HCO3- exchange activity was found to be a chloride-dependent, DIDS-sensitive and niflumate-insensitive process. The presence of the SLC26A6 anion exchanger was detected by both RT-PCR and(More)
