Further studies in deoxycorticosterone acetate treated rats: brain content of mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid receptors and effect of steroid antagonists on salt intake.

Abstract

We have studied the role of mineralocorticoid receptors (MR) and glucocorticoid receptors (GR) on salt appetite developed by deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA) treated rats. To this end, we measured the effects of DOCA given on alternate days on (1) salt intake; (2) MR and GR in hippocampus (HIPPO), amygdala (AMYG), and hypothalamus (HT); (3) the activity… (More)
