Abstract in Portuguese
Uma das causas da hipertensão está relacionada a alterações de núcleos autonômicos responsáveis pelo controle dos reflexos cardiovasculares, destacando-se o PVN, o NTS e o RVLM. A ANG II, atuando nestes núcleos, participa do controle da PA. Estudos in vitro, demonstraram uma via de sinalização da ANG II que envolve a ativação da PI3K e da Akt. Neste estudo avaliamos as diferenças na atividade da PI3K, através da quantificação da subunidade p85 (PI3K) e da p-Akt por meio de immunoblotting desses núcleos centrais de animais SHR, WKY e Wistar, além da interação da PI3K com os efeitos cardiovasculares da ANG II injetada no PVN de Wistar acordados. A expressão da p85 não diferiu entre os núcleos estudados. No entanto, a p-Akt estava 1,5x mais expressa no PVN de SHR. Ainda, o aumento da PAM promovido pela injeção de ANG II no PVN foi reduzido 5 min após a injeção do inibidor da PI3K, com recuperação da resposta 30 min mais tarde, sugerindo que a via da PI3K está mais ativa no PVN de animais SHR e que a interação das vias ANG II-PI3K está relacionada com a hipertensão.

Abstract in English
One cause of the hypertension is associated to changes in autonomic nuclei that control the cardiovascular reflexes. Among these nuclei are PVN, NST and RVLM. The ANG II, acting in these nuclei, contributes to the control of the AP. In vitro studies had demonstrated a signaling pathway of the ANG II that involves the activation of PI3K and Akt. In the present study we evaluated the PI3K activity via expression of p85 (PI3K) and p-Akt, through the immunoblotting of these central nuclei of SHR, WKY and Wistar. Moreover, we evaluated the interaction of PI3K to the cardiovascular effects of ANG II injected into the PVN of awake Wistar. The p85 expression was not different at all autonomic nuclei studied. However, the p-Akt expression was 1.5x higher in the PVN of SHR. Besides, the increase in the MAP elicited by the injection of ANG II into the PVN was reduced 5 min after the blockade of the PI3K, and restored 30 min later, suggesting that PI3K pathway is more activate at the PVN level of SHR and that the interaction between ANG II-PI3K is related to hypertension.
