Many investigations have been devoted to determining the role of angiotensin II (ANG II) and aldosterone (ALD) in sodium-depletion-induced sodium appetite, but few were focused on the mechanisms mediating the salty taste changes accompanied with sodium depletion. To further elucidate the mechanism of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) action in mediating sodium intake behavior and accompanied salty taste changes, the present study examined the salty taste function changes accompanied… CONTINUE READING
