Effects of nitric oxide synthase inhibition and endothelin ETA receptor blockade on haemodynamics in hypertensive rats.


1. The objectives of the present study were to study regional differences in haemodynamics between spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) and normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats induced by the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor NG-monomethyl-L-arginine (L-NMMA) and the endothelin ETA receptor antagonist BQ 123 in vivo in tissues known to be important for… (More)
