Comparison of this new model of cSSHT with the total arterial barodenervation model, comprised of sino-aortic denervation plus salt, which is the classical model of induced eSSHT, is almost inescapable.
Our findings also suggest that this local RMSAP is increased by a HNa diet per se, and even more so when aortic denervation and a HNa diet are conjoined.
On the other hand, independently of aortic denervation status, the rats showed a 45% reduction in plasma NO bioavailability (positive [DELTA]pNOB) when they changed from a LNa diet to a HNa diet, which was interpreted as indicating that this rat substrain shows some degree of endothelial salt sensitivity, and suggests that this sensitivity may be one of the constitutive elements of the SS systemic phenotype (the endothelial element).
