The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential influence of endogenous ovarian hormones on cardiac oxidative stress in renovascular hypertension. Female Wistar rats (N = 10 per group) were divided among 4 groups: (i) normotensive control; (ii) hypertensive control; (iii) normotensive ovariectomized; and (iv) hypertensive ovariectomized rats. To induce hypertension, 2-kidney 1-clip (2K1C) Goldblatt's method was followed. Blood pressure (BP) was enhanced (25%) in 2K1C and it was not further altered in hypertensive ovariectomized animals. Lipid peroxidation (measured by thiobarbituric acid reactive substances; TBARS) increased in heart homogenates after ovariectomy (253%) and was additionally augmented when associated with hypertension (by 28%). Superoxide dismutase and catalase activities were similar in both hypertensive groups. Hypertension enhanced glutathione peroxidase activity (75%), but the association with ovariectomy prevented this change. Total radical trapping antioxidant potential (TRAP) decreased in hypertensive rats (34%) and was recovered when associated with ovariectomy. However, this adaptation seems not to be sufficient to avoid the increased oxidative damage in ovariectomized hypertensive animals. These results suggest a protective role for physiological ovarian hormones in the cardiac oxidative stress induced by 2K1C hypertension.
