Effects of human renin in the vasculature of rats transgenic for human angiotensinogen.


Transgenic rats, which express the human angiotensinogen gene, provide a unique model for studying local vascular effects of human renin. We examined the cleavage of human angiotensinogen to angiotensin I (Ang I) by human renin and its inhibition by a human renin inhibitor in an isolated perfused hindlimb preparation from such rats. Perfusion resulted in… (More)
