We tested whether the responsiveness of the kidney to basal renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) or hypoxia-induced reflex increases in RSNA, is enhanced in angiotensin-dependent hypertension in rabbits. Mean arterial pressure, measured in conscious rabbits, was similarly increased (+16 +/- 3 mmHg) 4 wk after clipping the left (n = 6) or right (n = 5) renal artery or commencing a subcutaneous ANG II infusion (n = 9) but was not increased after sham surgery (n = 10). Under pentobarbital… CONTINUE READING
