Effect of nitric oxide within the paraventricular nucleus on renal sympathetic nerve discharge: role of GABA.


Both nitric oxide (NO) and GABA are known to provide inhibitory inputs to the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus and are involved in the control of sympathetic outflow. The purpose of the present study was to examine the interaction of NO and GABA in the regulation of renal sympathetic nerve activity in rats. The responses of renal nerve… (More)
