Genetic Hypertension: Other Models

  • Thomas G. Coleman
Part of the Blood Pressure Control book series (BPCO, volume 1)


Rats, mice, and even turkeys have been selectively inbred to alter blood pressure. The primary use of many of these models has been to study the inheritance of specific traits rather than the physiology of blood pressure control. However, blood pressure control has been studied in two inbred strains of hypertensive rats in addition to the Okamoto and Dahl strains.
