Genetic analysis of alpha 2-adrenergic receptors and blood pressure using Dahl salt-sensitive rats.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of alpha 2-adrenergic receptors in genetic hypertension by cosegregation analysis using Dahl rats. DESIGN Inbred Dahl salt-sensitive (SS/Jr) rats were crossed with inbred Dahl salt-resistant (SR/Jr) rats; also, SS/Jr rats were crossed with several control strains, and large F2 populations were subsequently produced from each… (More)
