Effect of aging and sodium deprivation on plasma concentration of aldosterone and on plasma renin activity in the rat.

Abstract

Age-related changes in plasma aldosterone and corticosterone concentrations as well as in plasma renin activity in response to 10 days of sodium deprivation were studied in old as compared to adult male Long-Evans rats. Chronic sodium deprivation greatly increased plasma concentrations of aldosterone both in old and in adult animals. However, this effect… (More)
