To determine the influence of chronic ANG II infusion on urinary, plasma, and renal tissue levels of immunoreactive endothelin (ET), ANG II (65 ng/min) or saline vehicle was delivered via osmotic minipump in male Sprague-Dawley rats given either a high-salt diet (10% NaCl) or normal-salt diet (0.8% NaCl). High-salt diet alone caused a slight but not statistically significant increase (7 +/- 1%) in mean arterial pressure (MAP). MAP was significantly increased in ANG II-infused rats (41 +/- 10… CONTINUE READING
