Membrane mechanisms in arterial hypertension.


The purpose of this review is to focus on alterations in vascular muscle membrane potentials (Em), ionic permeabilities, and ionic transport systems which may either contribute to or be a consequence of the hypertensive state. Three models of hypertension are discussed: 1) deoxycorticosterone-salt (DOCA-salt)-induced hypertension; 2) low-renin (presumably… (More)
