We investigated whether angiotensin (ANG) II and its receptors contribute to lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced microglial activation through activation of the proinflammatory transcription factors nuclear factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) and activator protein-1 (AP-1). Using primary microglial cell cultures, we examined whether losartan [ANG type 1 receptor (AT(1))(More)
