OBJECTIVE Non specific lipoxygenase inhibitors have been reported to reduce the in vitro constrictor response and the in vivo pressor effect of angiotensin II in rats. The aim of this study was to assess the role of cysteinyl leukotrienes, in the vascular response to angiotensin II in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). METHODS Rings of thoracic aorta from SHR and normotensive Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) were compared in terms of contractile responses and release of cysteinyl leukotrienes in… CONTINUE READING
