Chymase-dependent angiotensin II formation in human vascular tissue.


BACKGROUND Some reports have suggested that, in vitro, human heart chymase in homogenates contributes little to angiotensin (Ang) II formation in the presence of natural protease inhibitors such as alpha-antitrypsin. We studied whether chymase bound to heparin, resembling an in vivo form, could contribute to Ang II formation in the presence of natural… (More)
