Central angiotensin II increases biosynthesis of tyrosine hydroxylase in the rat adrenal medulla.


Angiotensin II acting centrally contributes to the regulation of blood pressure and water intake and stimulates the release of catecholamines from the adrenal medulla. We hypothesized that the central angiotensin II is one mediator of biosynthesis of catecholamines in the adrenal medulla. Rats were administered i.c.v. angiotensin II or saline, and TH mRNA… (More)
