Sodium Responsiveness of Central a2-Adrenergic Receptors in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats


The responsiveness of central nervous system a2-adrenergic receptors in the neural control of renal function was compared in conscious spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and normotensive Wlstar-Kyoto rats (WKY) on normal or high sodium intake (3-4 weeks of 1% NaCl for drinking). The responsiveness of central aradrenergk receptors was determined by… (More)
