We studied the role of the renal and central noradrenergic neurons in the antihypertensive actions of potassium in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats. Supplementation with 0.2% KCl could moderate the development of the DOCA-salt hypertension. The potassium supplement attenuated sodium retention in the DOCA-salt rats, and, thus, sodium "space" at wk 4 was significantly smaller in the KCl-supplemented DOCA-salt rats than in the DOCA-salt rats. Norepinephrine turnover was measured from the rate of… CONTINUE READING
