PPARalpha activator effects on Ang II-induced vascular oxidative stress and inflammation.


Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha (PPARalpha) activator, reduces blood pressure (BP) in some hypertensive models by unclear mechanisms. We tested the hypothesis that DHA would prevent BP elevation and improve vascular dysfunction in angiotensin (Ang) II-infused rats by modulating of NADPH oxidase activity and… (More)
