To determine whether increased Na(+)-H+ antiport activity in vascular smooth muscle cells may relate to the pathogenesis of hypertension in the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR), we monitored Na(+)-dependent alkalinization of acidified cells from the hypertensive strain and two normotensive controls, the Wistar-Kyoto rat (WKY) and the Wistar rat.
