Effect of a monoclonal antibody to angiotensin II on hemodynamic responses to noradrenergic stimulation in pithed rats

P C WongP B Timmermans


A specific angiotensin II monoclonal antibody, KAA8, was used to examine the interaction between sympathetic function and angiotensin II in pithed rats. KAA8, at 5 or 50 mg/kg i.v., did not alter the mean blood pressure, cardiac output, total peripheral resistance, or heart rate responses to sympathetic neural stimulation (0.25-4.0 Hz) or to norepinephrine (0.3-3 micrograms/kg i.v.) but blocked significantly the hemodynamic responses to angiotensin II (0.03-1.0 microgram/kg i.v.) and to angiotensin III (0.3-10 micrograms/kg i.v.). KAA8 treatment also reduced the plasma immunoreactive angiotensin II from 2,880 +/- 475 pg/ml to an undetectable level. In contrast, captopril (5 mg/kg i.v.) and saralasin (10 or 50 micrograms/kg/min i.v.) inhibited the mean blood pressure and total peripheral resistance responses, but not the cardiac output and heart rate responses, to sympathetic neural stimulation and to norepinephrine. These results, which confirm previous findings by Kaufman and Vollmer (Kaufman LJ, Vollmer RR: Endogenous angiotensin II facilitates sympathetically mediated hemodynamic responses in pithed rats. J Pharmacol Exp Ther 1985;235:128-134), demonstrate that angiotensin II selectively potentiates the sympathetic vascular ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
