Renal medullary interstitial infusion ofl-arginine prevents hypertension in Dahl salt-sensitive rats.


Studies were designed to examine the effects of renal medullary interstitial infusion of l-arginine (l-Arg) on the development of high-salt-induced hypertension in Dahl salt-sensitive/Rapp (DS) rats. The threshold dose of l-Arg (300 μg ⋅ kg-1 ⋅ min-1) that increased the renal medullary blood flow without altering the cortical blood flow was first determined… (More)
