Nitric oxide (NO) biosynthesis increases during pregnancy and has been shown to suppress baroreceptor activity. The renal response to a simulated increase in circulating blood volume (atrial distension) is also attenuated at this time. We hypothesized that blocking NO biosynthesis during pregnancy would restore the renal response. Female rats were implanted with indwelling intracardiac balloons and central venous cannulas. After recovery, they were mated, and on day 14 of pregnancy, osmotic… CONTINUE READING
