Dahl Salt Sensitive (DS) rats rapidly develop high blood pressure when exposed to a high-salt diet. Recent studies suggest that DS rats have poorly functioning baroreceptor afferents and baroreflexes even when salt intake is restricted. This study examines baroreceptor pressure- and mechano-transduction in DS, Dahl Resistant (DR), and Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats during low- and high-salt conditions. Single unit, regularly discharging baroreceptors were studied using an in vitro aortic arch-aortic… CONTINUE READING
