Intrarenal arterial infusion of angiotensin II (4 ng/kg per min) reduced glomerular filtration rate and urinary Na+ excretion without affecting fractional Na+ excretion. Infusion of norepinephrine (30 ng/kg per min) reduced both urinary Na+ excretion and fractional Na+ excretion with a slight hypofiltration. The angiotensin II- and the norepinephrine-induced renal responses were suppressed during simultaneous infusion of a spontaneous nitric oxide donor 1-hydroxy-2-oxo-3-(N-methyl-3-aminopropyl)-3-methyl 1-triazene (NOC 7, 30 ng/kg per min) which itself had little influence on the renal parameters. The results suggest that in the rabbit kidney in vivo NOC 7 can interfere with the angiotensin II-induced hypofiltration and norepinephrine-evoked tubular reabsorption and thereby suppresses their antinatriuretic actions.
