The Dahl salt resistant (DR) rat maintained on a low, 0.4%, or a high 8.0% salt-diet remained normotensive. The bradykinin (BK) induced falls in the systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) were unaffected (P > 0.05) by the presence of indomethacin (5 mg/kg). Indomethacin, however, caused a substantial (P < 0.001) reduction in the duration of the hypotensive action of bradykinin. It is speculated that the indomethacin effects result from an inhibition of the cyclooxygenase system in DR rats.
