Enhancement of intrarenal angiotensinogen in Dahl salt-sensitive rats on high salt diet.

This study was performed to examine whether there is an inappropriate regulation of intrarenal angiotensinogen in Dahl-salt sensitive rats (DS) fed a high salt diet (HS). Dahl salt-resistant rats (DR) and DS were maintained on HS (8% NaCl) or low salt diet (LS, 0.3% NaCl) for 4 weeks. Systolic blood pressure (SBP), measured by tail-cuff plethysmography, was… CONTINUE READING
