[Effect of inhibiting brain reactive oxygen species on sympathetic nerve activity in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats].

OBJECTIVE To investigate whether brain reactive oxygen species mediate sympathoexcitation and arterial pressure elevation in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats. METHODS DOCA-salt hypertensive model was established in male SD rats by subcutaneous injection of DOCA after uninephrectomy and drinking 1% NaCl solution for 4 weeks. The baseline mean arterial pressure… CONTINUE READING
