[An experimental study of expression of angiotension converting enzyme 2 in myocardium and effect of telmisartan treatment in pressure-overloaded rats].


OBJECTIVE To study the effect of hypertension and telmisartan treatment on the protein and gene expression of cardiac angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) in pressure-overloaded rats. METHODS Coarctation of suprarenal abdominal aorta was reproduced in 8 week-old male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats and then randomized into 4 groups, including a sham group (n… (More)
