Nitric oxide synthase and renin-angiotensin system gene expression in salt-sensitive and salt-resistant Sabra rats.

Abstract

The molecular mechanisms of salt sensitivity and the contribution of the kidney to salt-induced hypertension in Sabra rats are imperfectly defined. We investigated the expression of the nitric oxide (NO) system (endothelial, inducible, and neural NO synthases) and renin-angiotensin system (renin, angiotensinogen, and angiotensin II type 1A receptor) gene… (More)
