Angiotensin-(1-9) reverses experimental hypertension and cardiovascular damage by inhibition of the angiotensin converting enzyme/Ang II axis
MetadataShow full item record
BACKGROUND:: Little is known about the biological effects of angiotensin-(1-9), but available evidence shows that angiotensin-(1-9) has beneficial effects in preventing/ameliorating cardiovascular remodeling. OBJECTIVE:: In this study, we evaluated whether angiotensin-(1-9) decreases hypertension and reverses experimental cardiovascular damage in the rat. METHODS AND RESULTS:: Angiotensin-(1-9) (600 ng/kg per min for 2 weeks) reduced already-established hypertension in rats with early high blood pressure induced by angiotensin II infusion or renal artery clipping. Angiotensin-(1-9) also improved cardiac (assessed by echocardiography) and endothelial function in small-diameter mesenteric arteries, cardiac and aortic wall hypertrophy, fibrosis, oxidative stress, collagen and transforming growth factor type β - 1 protein expression (assessed by western blot). The beneficial effect of angiotensin-(1-9) was blunted by coadministration of the angiotensin type 2(AT2) receptor blocker PD123319

Regulatory role of angiotensin II on progesterone production by cultured human granulosa cells. Expression of angiotensin II type-2 receptor Johnson, M. C.; Vega, M.; Vantman, D.; Troncoso, J. L.; Devoto, L. (1997)The role of angiotensin II (Angll) in ovarian steroidogenesis is not clearly understood. In order to study its action on progesterone synthesis and to determine which receptor subtype is involved, granulosa cells obtained ...
