Dietary salt and arteriolar responsiveness

Matt Boegehold

Thanks for presenting these very interesting findings. Do you think that reduced arteriolar responsiveness in normotensive rats fed high salt for 4-6 weeks might also be linked to reduced endogenous AII activity? Is there a compensatory increase in arteriolar responsiveness to AII during this more chronic suppression of AII, and if so, how might this influence arteriolar responses to ACh, hypoxia and iloprost?
