The contribution of brain angiotensin II to the baroreflex regulation of renal sympathetic nerve activity in conscious normotensive and hypertensive rats.

Abstract

Angiotensin II receptor density in the brain is elevated when dietary salt intake is raised or in the state of hypertension. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the angiotensin II modulation of the baroreceptor control of renal sympathetic nerve activity was altered under these conditions. Wistar rats, fed either a regular (0.25% w/w sodium) or… (More)
