The spontaneously hypertensive rat is the most widely studied animal model of essential hypertension, yet the genetics of transmission of high blood pressure in this strain have not been clearly defined. It has been proposed that in the spontaneously hypertensive rat, blood pressure follows a simple additive mode of inheritance and that the hypertension is primarily determined by a single major locus. To investigate the genetics of transmission of increased blood pressure in the spontaneously… CONTINUE READING
