1. L-Arginine prevents adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH)-induced hypertension in the rat. To confirm that this effect is mediated through the nitric oxide (NO) system, we examined whether N-nitro-L-arginine (NOLA) could reverse the L-arginine-induced blockade of ACTH-induced hypertension. 2. Blood pressure and metabolic parameters were examined in sham-, ACTH., L-arginine + sham-, NOLA + sham-, ACTH + L-arginine- and ACTH + L-arginine + NOLA-treated Sprague-Dawley rats (n = 40). 3....[Show more]
