Modulation of nitric oxide synthase activity in brain, liver, and blood vessels of spontaneously hypertensive rats by ascorbic acid: protection from free radical injury.

Abstract

End organ damage in essential hypertension has been linked to increased oxygen free radical generation, reduced antioxidant defense, and/or attenuation of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) activity. Ascorbic acid (AA), a water-soluble antioxidant, has been reported as a strong defense against free radicals in both aqueous and nonaqueous environment. In this study… (More)
