Impaired myogenic responsiveness of renal microvessels in Dahl salt-sensitive rats.


The mechanisms mediating abnormal renal autoregulation in Dahl salt-sensitive (DS) rats have not been fully defined. In the present study, we assessed myogenic responsiveness of interlobular arteries (ILAs), afferent arterioles (AAs), and efferent arterioles in isolated perfused hydronephrotic Dahl rat kidneys. Dahl rats were divided into four groups… (More)
