The adrenal and renal responses to similar increases in plasma angiotensin II (AII) were studied in chronically catheterized fetal lambs (112-131 days gestation: term 145 days) and adult nonpregnant sheep. The rate of AII infusion was adjusted to compare the effect of similar rises in plasma AII concentration between fetuses and adult ewes. Increases in plasma AII were associated with a decrease in plasma renin activity (PRA) in both fetuses (5.55 +/- 1.53 to 2.11 +/- 0.59 ng/ml per hr, P less… CONTINUE READING
