CGS 26303 is a vasopeptidase inhibitor that simultaneously inhibits endothelin-converting enzyme (ECE) and neutral endopeptidase (NEP). We compared the effects of chronic treatment with CGS 26303 to the selective inhibition of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) and NEP during the transition from left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) to congestive heart(More)
Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is generated from big ET-1 by endothelin converting enzyme-1 (ECE-1). This process is inhibited by phosphoramidon through binding to the catalytic domain of ECE-1. There are four isoforms of human ECE-1 (ECE-1a, ECE-1b, ECE-1c and ECE-1d) which possess a conserved catalytic domain. Interestingly, a recent study has shown that in(More)
