Angiotensin II causes vasoconstriction via the type 1 receptor (AT(1)R) and vasodilatation through the type 2 receptor (AT(2)R). Both are expressed in muscle microvasculature, where substrate exchanges occur. Whether they modulate basal muscle microvascular perfusion and substrate metabolism is not known. We measured microvascular blood volume (MBV), a measure of microvascular surface area and perfusion, in rats during systemic infusion of angiotensin II at either 1 or 100 ng/kg per minute… CONTINUE READING
