    Timo Vaskonen
    Institute of Biomedicine, Pharmacology, University of Helsinki, Finland
    J Nutr 132:231-7. 2002

    Pia Stewen
    Minerva Institute for Medical Research, Helsinki, Finland
    Hypertens Res 26:583-9. 2003
    ..5% mineral salt loading was capable of increasing renal AT1 receptor density and decreasing renal B2 receptor density. An altered balance between these receptors might be associated with hypertension under conditions of sodium loading...
