Angiotensin II (ANG II)-mediated catecholamine release and its possible contribution to the pressor response was assessed in baroreceptor-denervated rats. Neonatal male Sprague-Dawley rats were injected with the sympatholytic drug, guanethidine monosulphate (50 mg/kg s.c., 6 days/week) for 40 days. Plasma catecholamine concentrations were measured using a 3H-radioenzymatic assay as follows: (a) before and 30 s after the injection of saline or ANG II (79.3 pmol/kg i.v.), at the peak of the… CONTINUE READING
