Renal thrombotic microangiopathy in a genetic model of hypertension in mice.

Abstract

Our goal was to develop a model of accelerated hypertension with renal microangiopathy. Transgenic mice that are hypertensive because of overexpression of human renin (R+ mice) and human angiotensin (A+ mice) genes were studied. To increase arterial pressure to levels comparable to those that may be seen in malignant hypertension, high salt was added to the… (More)
