Inhibition of inducible nitric oxide synthase during high dietary salt intake.


BACKGROUND Previous studies indicate that nitric oxide (NO) is involved in the regulation of blood pressure (BP) and natriuresis in response to high sodium intake. We investigated the role of inducible NO synthase (iNOS) in response to an increased salt intake. METHODS Conscious, chronically catheterized rats were exposed to a high-salt (6%) diet for 14… (More)
