BACKGROUND: Previous studies showed that combining the Rf-1 and Rf-3 or Rf-4 QTLs of FHH induced synergistic interactions markedly enhancing renal susceptibility. The present study aimed to determine the presence of such interaction between the Rf-1 and Rf-5 QTLs. METHODS: Renal damage susceptibility was assessed in Rf-1B, Rf-1B+5, Rf-1B+4 congenics and ACI control rats in four situations: two-kidney control (2K), unilateral nephrectomy (UNX), L-NAME-induced hypertension (2K+L-NAME) and UNX+L-NAME. Albuminuria (UAV) and systolic blood pressure (SBP) were measured during 18 weeks of follow-up. In separate experiments, renal autoregulation was assessed in 2K rats. RESULTS: In all four situations, Rf-1B+4 rats developed more severe UAV than ACI, Rf-1B and Rf-1B+5. There were no significant differences in UAV between Rf-1B and Rf-1B+5 rats. In the 2K and UNX situation no differences in SBP were noted between all four strains. With 2K+L-NAME and UNX+L-NAME treatment, SBP in double congenics was higher than that of ACI and Rf-1B rats. Renal autoregulation was similarly impaired in all three congenic strains. CONCLUSION: We conclude that the Rf-5 region, alone or in the presence of Rf-1B, does not affect the development of renal damage. We cannot substantiate that the Rf-5 region contains genes influencing renal damage susceptibility.
