Effects of angiotensins II (AngII), angiotensin IV (AngIV, 3-8 fragment of angiotensin II) and losartan (an antagonist of angiotensin receptor type 1) on the proliferation of adrenocortical cells in ovariectomized rats have been studied. The incorporation of bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) into cell nuclei was used as an index of cell proliferation. AngIV… CONTINUE READING
