Abstract

Left ventricular hypertrophy was induced in unilaterally-nephrectomized rats by excess dietary salt intake, with or without injections of deoxycorticosterone (DOCA). No changes occurred in the cardiac activities or distribution of several lysosomal enzymes (cathepsin D, acid phosphatase, β-acetylglucosaminidase). Similarly, regression of hypertrophy after return to normal salt intake and cessation of DOCA was unaccompanied by any changes in the enzymes. These results suggest that significant changes in lysosomal function are not an important feature of the development or regression of cardiac hypertrophy induced by systemic hypertension.
