Effects of dietary mg status and susceptibility to hypertension on in-vitro lipid peroxidation in rats Lai, Lucinda Man Lai

Abstract

This study was designed to determine the association between dietary Mg (Mg) status on induction of hypertension in both normotensive Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). The particular interest was the link between lipoprotein lipid composition and susceptibility to oxidation and development of hypertension caused by Mg status. Six-week old male SHR and WKY were fed a synthetic diet with varying Mg levels (Mgreplete and deplete) for eight weeks. Two experiments were conducted with animals fed either casein (Experiment I) or soy (Experiment II) protein diets. SHR exhibited significantly (P
