Transcriptional upregulation of brain-derived neurotrophic factor in rostral ventrolateral medulla by angiotensin II: significance in superoxide homeostasis and neural regulation of arterial pressure.


RATIONALE Oxidative stress in rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM), where sympathetic premotor neurons for the maintenance of neurogenic vasomotor tone are located, contributes to neural mechanisms of hypertension. Emerging evidence suggests that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) manifests "nontrophic" actions. OBJECTIVE We assessed the hypothesis… (More)
