a 1-and a 2-Adrenoceptor Control of Sodium Transport Reverses in Developing Hypertension

a-Adrenergic receptor (AR) activation enhances sodium retention in certain forms of hypertension. The objective of the present study was to understand the role of a-ARs in regulating sodium transport by distal tubules (DT). DT cells were isolated from kidneys of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats at 6 weeks, when hypertension… CONTINUE READING
