This study compared angiotensin II (Ang II) and angiotensin III (Ang III) for their effects on rat neonatal cardiomyocytes and cardiac fibroblasts in vitro and discussed the possible role of Ang III in the pathogenesis of cardiac remodeling. To do so, protein synthesis, cardiac fibroblast proliferation, collagen synthesis, and secretion in response to… CONTINUE READING
