Abstract

Angiotensin-(1-12) [ANG-(1-12)] is a newly identified peptide detected in a variety of rat tissues, including the brain. To determine whether brain ANG-(1-12) participates in blood pressure regulation, we treated male adult (mRen2)27 hypertensive rats (24-28 wk of age) with Anti-ANG-(1-12) IgG or Preimmune IgG via an intracerebroventricular cannula for 14 days. Immunoneutralization of brain ANG-(1-12) lowered systolic blood pressure (-43 ± 8 mmHg on day 3 and -26 ± 7 mmHg on day 10 from baseline, P < 0.05). Water intake was lower on intracereroventricular day 6 in the Anti-ANG-(1-12) IgG group, accompanied by higher plasma osmolality on day 13, but there were no differences in urine volume, food intake, or body weight during the 2-wk treatment. In Preimmune IgG-treated animals, there were no significant changes in these variables over the 2-wk period. The antihypertensive effects produced by endogenous neutralization of brain ANG-(1-12) suggest that ANG-(1-12) is functionally active in brain pathways regulating blood pressure.
