Han, S. P., X. Chen, B. Cox, C.-L. Yang, Y.-M. Wu, L. Naes and T. C. Westfall. Role of neuropeptide Y in cold stress-induced hypertension. Peptides 19 (2) 351–358, 1998.—Chronic cold stress (4°C) produced a sustained increase in mean arterial pressure in both normotensive and borderline hypertensive rats (BHR). The high blood pressure in BHRs was significantly reversed by a neuropeptide Y (NPY) Y 1 receptor antagonist suggesting that NPY is involved in mediating stress-induced hypertension. Corresponding increases in adrenal NPY messenger RNA and NPY immunoreactivity were found during the stress; furthermore, chronic cold stress also potentiated the pressor response of rats to a subsequent acute stress test in which NPY has been shown to play a role. These results suggest that chronic cold stress-induced hypertension is mediated by elevated NPY release and vascular tone as a result of increased NPY gene expression and storage.
