English Background Although impaired nitric oxide production contributes importantly to salt- sensitivity, the role of the endothelial isoform of nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) has received little attention. In the present study we compared the effects of a high-salt diet on the blood pressure response of eNOS knockout (eNOS−/−) and control (eNOS+/+) mice. Methods Mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart...
