Antihypertensive effect of mechanism-based inhibition of renal arachidonic acid omega-hydroxylase activity.


PMID 12185006

Abstract

The cytochrome P-450 eicosanoid 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE) is a potent vasoconstrictor that is implicated in the regulation of blood pressure. The identification of selective inhibitors of renal 20-HETE formation for use in vivo would facilitate studies to determine the systemic effects of this eicosanoid. We characterized the acetylenic fatty acid sodium 10-undecynyl sulfate (10-SUYS) as a potent and selective mechanism-based inhibitor of renal 20-HETE formation. A single dose of 10-SUYS caused an acute reduction in mean arterial blood pressure in 8-wk-old spontaneously hypertensive rats. The decrease in mean arterial pressure was maximal 6 h after 10-SUYS treatment (17.9 +/- 3.2 mmHg; P < 0.05), and blood pressure returned to baseline levels within 24 h after treatment. Treatment with 10-SUYS was associated with a decrease in urinary 20-HETE formation in vivo and attenuation of the vasoconstrictor response of renal interlobar arteries to ANG II in vitro. These results provide further evidence that 20-HETE plays an important role in the regulation of blood pressure in the spontaneously hypertensive rat.
