Contribution of angiotensin II internalization to intrarenal angiotensin II levels in rats.


This study was designed to determine the involvement of AT(1) receptors in the uptake of ANG II in the kidney of rats exposed to differing salt intake. Male Wistar-Kyoto rats were treated with a normal-salt (NS; 1% NaCl, n = 7) or a low-salt (LS; 0.025% NaCl, n = 7) diet combined with (LS+Los, n = 7; NS+Los, n = 7) or without losartan (30 mg. kg(-1). day(-1… (More)
