Chronic production of peroxynitrite in the vascular wall impairs vasorelaxation function in SHR/NDmcr-cp rats, an animal model of metabolic syndrome.


We have previously reported that peroxynitrite is involved in dysfunction of nitric oxide (NO)-mediated vasorelaxation in SHR/NDmcr-cp rats (SHR-cp), which display typical symptoms of metabolic syndrome. This study investigated whether peroxynitrite is actually generated in the vascular wall with angiotensin II-induced NADPH-oxidase activation, thus… (More)
