Angiotensin-(1-7) (Ang-(1-7)) is reported to be equipotent with angiotensin II (AII) in producing some central biological effects but the receptors responsible for these actions have not been defined. Three classes of receptor have been proposed: AT1, AT2, and a putative Ang-(1-7) selective receptor. This study specifically evaluates Ang-(1-7) competition(More)
The unusual case of an infant with aortic origin of the left pulmonary artery is presented. The patient developed a rare complication of lobar emphysema due to bronchial compression from the enlarged right pulmonary artery. Operative anastomosis of the left pulmonary artery to the pulmonary trunk was successful, with subsequent resolution of the lobar(More)
This study was designed to characterize the distribution of angiotensin II (AII) binding sites in the hamster brain. Brain sections were incubated with [125I][sar1,ile8]-angiotensin II in the absence and presence of angiotensin II receptor subtype selective compounds, losartan (AT1 subtype) and PD123177 (AT2 subtype). Binding was quantified by densitometric(More)
