L-Arginine is the endogenous source of nitric oxide in the endothelial cells of blood vessels. In thoracic aorta from Watanabe heritable hyperlipidaemic (WHHL) rabbits, the L-arginine/lysine and L-arginine/aspartic acid ratios were reduced in comparison to New Zealand rabbit aorta. This result indicates that a variation in aortic arginine/lysine or arginine/aspartic acid ratios could be related to the hyperlipidaemic status.

Abstract

L-Arginine is the endogenous source of nitric oxide in the endothelial cells of blood vessels. In thoracic aorta from Watanabe heritable hyperlipidaemic (WHHL) rabbits, the L-arginine/lysine and L-arginine/aspartic acid ratios were reduced in comparison to New Zealand rabbit aorta. This result indicates that a variation in aortic arginine/lysine or arginine/aspartic acid ratios could be related to the hyperlipidaemic status.
