Abstract

It has been proposed that essential hypertension and genetic hypertension may be associated with various functional or structural abnormalities of cell membranes [1–3]. The data of these studies support the concept that changes in electrolyte handling or physiochemical properties of membrances may be a key etiological factor in hypertension. Recently, electron spin resonance (ESR) and a spin-label technique have been widely used to elucidate the composition, structure, and behavior of biomembranes and perturbations of the membranes by external agents [4–6].
