Regional brain concentrations of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide in normotensive Wistar-Kyoto and spontaneously hypertensive rats.

Abstract

The regional brain and spinal cord concentrations of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide immunoreactivity (VIP) were measured in age-matched normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive (SH) rats. The relative order of distribution of VIP in the WKY strain was cortex (44 pmol/g) greater than hippocampus = striatum greater than midbrain… (More)
