These results indicate that enalapril raised K f nearly twofold in treated vs. untreated animals. This difference is mostly due to the reduced value of P GC in treated animals (see Table  2.2), which itself stems from the vasodilatation induced by enalapril, leading to a reduction in efferent arteriolar resistance and in P GC .
