Summary: A1 noradrenergic neurons in the caudal ventrolateral medulla (CVLM) are thought to contribute to body fluid homeostasis and cardiovascular regulation. In order to examine the role these neurons play on inhibition of renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) induced by hypertonic saline infusion, rats received 6.3 ng of anti-DBH-SAP (Cat. #IT-03) into the CVLM. Saporin (Cat. #PR-01) was used as a control. Animals treated with anti-DBH-SAP displayed lengthened duration of the pressor response and sustained RSNA.
