Studies in experimental animals suggest that the diabetic state is associated with impaired renal autoregulation. As a result, increase in systemic pressure does not produce expected afferent arteriolar vasoconstriction that would minimize transmission of the elevated pressure to the glomerulus.
Furthermore, KO mice studies involve the influence of removal of the NOS gene from not only the kidney but also all from other tissues, which can modify a variety of regulatory mechanisms for proximal tubular transport, such as hormonal regulation, renal autoregulation, and neural regulation.
We will examine whether sEH inhibition attenuates BP and improves renal autoregulation and pressure natriuresis in 2K1C hypertension.
