In the past decade there have been considerable advances in basic knowledge of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS). The most important new development has been the appreciation of a tissue based RAS that can be independently regulated from the renal and vascular RAS. Greater insight into the mechanism by which angiotension-II (AII) exerts its action has been achieved through the study of molecular biology and pharmacological characterization of multiple receptor subtypes. This review summarises… CONTINUE READING
