Effect of genistein on cardiovascular responses to angiotensin II in conscious unrestrained rats.

Abstract

Soybeans contain genistein, a phytoestrogen that may have beneficial effects in coronary artery disease, osteoporosis, and breast cancer. In vitro studies demonstrated that genistein reduced vascular smooth muscle contractions to angiotensin II. We tested the hypothesis that genistein attenuates the overall cardiovascular responses to angiotensin II via… (More)
