It is known that the endothelial function is compromised in atherosclerosis and arterial hypertension and that angiotensin is an important factor contributing to both pathophysiologies. The aim of this study was to evaluate the vascular function in a hypercholesterolemia/atherosclerosis model, in the angiotensin II-dependent 2-kidney 1-clip (2K1C) hypertension model and when both conditions coexist. Eight-week-old apolipoprotein E knockout (apoE; n=20) and C57BL/6 (C57; n=20) mice underwent a… CONTINUE READING
