Genetic Hypertension: The Dahl Substrains of Salt-Sensitive and Salt-Resistant Rats

  • Thomas G. Coleman
Part of the Blood Pressure Control book series (BPCO, volume 1)


The two Dahl or Brookhaven substrains of rats were developed by inbreeding at the Brookhaven National Laboratories in the 1960’s. They have been named “salt-sensitive” and “salt-resistant” since one becomes hypertensive when placed on a sodium-rich diet while the other remains normotensive.
