Detection of angiotensin II mediated nitric oxide release within the nucleus of the solitary tract using electron-paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy.


We previously identified an action of nitric oxide (NO) within the nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) that attenuates the cardiac component of the baroreceptor reflex. In the present study we have tested the hypothesis that angiotensin II (AngII), acting on angiotensin type 1 receptors (AT1R), can release NO within the NTS and that its actions are mediated by… (More)
