Cardiac angiotensin II receptor populations during aortocaval fistulae, AII and beta adrenergic receptor blockade.

Cardiac angiotensin (AII) receptor subtype expression that occurs during volume overload and beta adrenergic blockade was assessed in male rats pretreated with saline (S) or saralasin (Sar) for 2 weeks. Following pre-treatment, an arteriovenous fistula was produced and some animals were then infused with metoprolol or propranolol for 28 days after which AII… (More)
