  • μ M). Net renal citrulline uptake and arginine release were almost stoichiometric (-36±7 and 38±6 ;nmol·min -1 ·100 ;g -1 body weight respectively in sham-operated rats) and were both diminished by 50% in enterectomized versus sham-operated rats. (clinsci.org)
  • Despite decreased net renal citrulline consumption and renal arginine production in enterectomized rats, whole-body rate of arginine appearance and arterial arginine did not change significantly. (clinsci.org)
  • 4. In conclusion, net renal arginine production is reduced 24 ;h after 75% enterectomy in fasted rats. (clinsci.org)
  • 6-8,12-15 In this respect, we recently reported that arginase contributes to arteriolar nitric oxide dysfunction in salt-sensitive hypertensive rats by depleting endothelial cells of L-arginine. (ahajournals.org)
