The cardiovascular effects of the centrally injected D-arginine were investigated in the conscious rat chronically instrumented with cisternal, arterial, and venous cannulae, as well as an electromagnetic flow probe around the superior mesenteric artery, renal artery, or terminal aorta (hindquarter). Intracisternal injection of D-arginine (10 mumol) increased arterial blood pressure and hindquarter flow lasting for 60 min or more. Previous injection of the beta-adrenoceptor blocker, propranolol… 
Hindquarters Vasoconstriction Through Central GABAB Receptors in Conscious Rats
The results suggest that GABAB receptor stimulation via the cisterna magna induced hindquarters vasoconstriction, probably due to central disinhibition of sympathetic activity.
Functional cardiovascular action of l-cysteine microinjected into pressor sites of the rostral ventrolateral medulla of the rat
The results indicate that l-cysteine has functional cardiovascular action in the RVLM of the anesthetized rat, and the responses to l- Cysteine involve both NMDA and non-NMDA receptors albeit in a mutually exclusive parallel fashion.
Pressor response to l-cysteine injected into the cisterna magna of conscious rats involves recruitment of hypothalamic vasopressinergic neurons
The results indicate that the cardiovascular responses to intracisternal injection of l-cysteine in the conscious rat are stereospecific and include recruitment of hypothalamic vasopressinergic neurons both in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei, as well as of medullary A1 neurons.

Findings suggest that central GABA(A) receptor blockade induces an autonomic pressor action with hindquarter vasodilatation in conscious rats.
Amino Acids That Centrally Influence Blood Pressure and Regional Blood Flow in Conscious Rats
Why amino acids are selected and how the brain regulates blood pressure and regional blood flow is outlined, which includes a concise history of amino acid neurotransmitters in cardiovascular research and summarizes brain areas where chemical stimulations produce blood pressure changes mainly in anesthetized animals.
Toxicological and pharmacological effects of D-arginine.
Evaluating the toxicity and pharmacology of D-arginine administered by the intraperitoneally route in albino male mice found that it produced a potentiation of pentobarbital sleeping time and a marked anticonvulsivant action against pentylenetetrazole.
