Treatment Summary:We will analyze kidney tissue extract and urine samples from SS rats and the newly generated SS.Fh1+ transgenic rats. The SS.Fh1+ rat was generated using a Sleeping Beauty transposon-mediated transgenic technique. Overexpression of fumarase has been confirmed in SS.Fh1+ rats. Preliminary study indicated that the development of salt-induced hypertension was altered in SS.Fh1+ rats compared to wild-type littermate SS rats. We will analyze kidney tissue extract and urine samples collected from rats maintained on a 0.4% NaCl diet or switched to a 4% NaCl diet for 7 days. The dietary protocol has been used in numerous studies to examine mechanisms underlying salt sensitivity including early responses (7 days) to salt in the SS model. In total, 64 rat samples (two rat strains, two salt levels, and 8 rats per condition) will be analyzed.
