F4/80 gene expression indicates the presence of macrophages in the kidneys of hypertensive mice. Ang II levels are elevated, but Ang II is probably not binding to AT1aR. (a) F4/80 gene presented a significant difference when compared to the respective controls. Values are expressed as the . compared to the control group with the -test. (b) AT1aR gene presented no significant difference when compared to the respective controls. Values are expressed as the . compared to the control group with the -test. Five mice for each group.
