Figure 9

Sex differences in the chromosome location of salt-sensitive hypertension in the DS rat. Shown is the difference in MAP between the DS rat and the salt-resistant Brown Norway (BN) rat or DS consomics in which chromosomes (C) 1, 5, 7, 13, 16 and 18 were substituted with the respective BN chromosomes in male (black bar) and female (white bar) rats. Note that the maximum difference in salt-sensitivity is expected to be between the DS and BN rats. #p < 0.05 vs DS, same sex. This figure was drawn using data from reference [101].
