Genetically determined chloride-sensitive hypertension and stroke.

Abstract

The stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHRSP) is a genetically determined model of "salt-sensitive" stroke and hypertension whose full phenotypic expression is said to require a diet high in Na+ and low in K+. We tested the hypothesis that dietary Cl- determines the phenotypic expression of the SHRSP. In the SHRSP fed a normal NaCl diet… (More)
