Effects of frog-skin angiotensin II in amphibians.

Abstract

The role of frog-skin angiotensin II (AII) in amphibia was studied by comparing the sodium and water permeability effects of three angiotensins (AII): frog skin (Ala-Pro-Gly-[Ile3, Val5]-Ang II), human [( Asp1, Ile5]-AII), and Japanese goosefish [( Asn1-Val5]-AII). Frog-skin AII increased the short-circuit current (SCC) significantly after it was added to… (More)
