    Hypertension is a multifactorial disorder, which has been associated with the reduction in baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) and autonomic dysfunction. Several studies have revealed that increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate [NAD(P)H]...

    Renovascular hypertensive (2K1C) rats exhibit impaired baroreflexes. Here we studied the effects of increased angiotensin type 2 receptor (AT2R) expression in the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) on baroreflex function of 2K1C rats and on selected gene levels at this site. Male Holtzman rats...

    Aims The caudal ventrolateral medulla (CVLM) is important for autonomic regulation and is rich in angiotensin II type 1A receptors (AT1AR). To determine their function, we examined whether the expression of AT1AR in the CVLM of mice lacking AT1AR (AT1A−/−) alters baroreflex...

    Background: Baroreflexes originate in the great vessels of the neck and thorax and prevent arterial pressure from rising or falling excessively. Methods: This study was undertaken to clarify the cause, clinical spectrum, and therapy of this disorder. We studied 11 patients with baroreflex...
