Monoamine oxidase activity in tissues of spontaneously hypertensive rats
- 11 Downloads
Monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity was assayed both in central and peripheral blood vessels of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and age-matched normotensive Wistar Kyoto rats (WKR). The activity of MAO in the brain and peripheral vasculature was essentially the same in both SHR and WKR. It can therefore be concluded that central and peripheral vascular MAO activity is not altered in the genetically hypertensive animals.
