Effects of neurochemical lesions restricted to spinal cord monoaminergic neurons on blood pressure and sympathetic activity of spontaneously hypertensive rats

, : Effects of neurochemical lesions restricted to spinal cord monoaminergic neurons on blood pressure and sympathetic activity of spontaneously hypertensive rats. Experientia 39(10): 1166-1168

Intraspinal (i.s.) injection of 6-hydroxydopamine or 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine in newborn spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) resulted, in the adult animal (30-week-old), in a marked decrease of spinal cord noradrenaline (NA) or 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) levels, respectively. Since both neurotoxin- and vehicle-injected rats developed full hypertension and had similar plasma catecholamine concentrations, it is concluded that in SHR neither spinal cord NA nor 5-HT play a major role in development and maintenance of hypertension.
