Hypertension induced by nitric oxide synthase inhibition activates the atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) system.

Abstract

We assessed the effect of nitric oxide (NO) synthase inhibition on plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) concentration and content in some brain structures [neurohypophysis (NH), adenohypophysis (AH), medial basal hypothalamus (MHB) and olfactory bulb (OB)] in rats before and after blood volume expansion (BVE). Male Wistar rats were injected i.p. with N… (More)
