Angiotensin II-Induced Hypertension Is Attenuated by Reduction of Sympathetic Output in NO-Sensitive Guanylyl Cyclase 1 Knockout Mice.


In the regulation of vascular tone, the dilatory nitric oxide (NO)/cGMP pathway balances vasoconstriction induced by the renin-angiotensin and sympathetic nervous systems. NO-induced cGMP formation is catalyzed by two guanylyl cyclases (GC), NO-sensitive guanylyl cyclase 1 (NO-GC1) and NO-GC2, with indistinguishable enzymatic properties. In vascular smooth… (More)
