Increased uridine adenosine tetraphosphate concentrations in plasma of juvenile hypertensives.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Uridine adenosine tetraphosphate (Up4A) was been recently characterized as a potent vasoconstrictor. Up4A occurs in plasma from healthy subjects at concentrations sufficient to cause strong vasoconstrictive effects. In this study, Up4A concentrations in plasma from juvenile hypertensives and normotensives were determined. METHODS AND RESULTS… (More)
