Effect of ovariectomy on salt-sensitivity. Shown is the difference in MAP between HS (8% NaCl) and LS diets 0.15-0.60% NaCl in the intact (white bar) and ovariectomized (Ovx) (striped bar) SHR [112] and DS rat [57]. §p < 0.05 vs Intact, same rat strain, same dietary sodium; †p < 0.05, HS vs LS, same rat strain, same gonadal state (see cited references for experimental and statistical details of individual studies).
