Brain C-FOS expression and pressor responses after I.V. or I.C.V. angiotensin in the near-term ovine fetus.

Fetal brain c-fos and cardiovascular responses after i.v. or i.c.v. angiotensin II administrations was determined in the near-term ovine fetuses. Both routes of angiotensin II markedly increased fetal mean arterial pressure. The latency of pressor responses by i.v. angiotensin II administration was shorter than by the i.c.v. route. The increased fetal mean… CONTINUE READING
