Dynorphin A (1-8)-like immunoreactivity (DN-LI A(1-8] was determined by radioimmunoassay in the brains of age matched spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and two normotensive control groups consisting of Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and Sprague-Dawley (SD) strain rats. A significantly lower DN-LI A(1-8) was found in the hippocampus and hypothalamus of the SHR compared with the WKY groups. DN-LI A(1-8) was 24% of control WKY levels in hippocampus and 79% of that in WKY hypothalamus at 16 weeks. Similar… CONTINUE READING
