The renal sodium pump participates in sodium homeostasis and has been predicted to have a role in salt dependent forms of hypertension. However, the status of the renal sodium pump in volume-dependent hypertension is unclear. We assessed the renal sodium pump and its activity in the deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt model in rats, a model of volume-dependent hypertension. Sprague-Dawley rats on ad libitum diet were compared with four groups of litter mates receiving high or low salt diets… CONTINUE READING
