Sodium Appetite Induced by Sodium Depletion is Suppressed by Intracerebroventricular Captopril
We have previously shown1 that systemic captopril (CAP) has effects that implicate angiotensin II in the expression of sodium appetite induced by sodium depletion in the rat. In addition, that report suggested that it is angiotensin II (Ang II) in the brain that was important.
