In this study we determined which angiotensin receptors may mediate the cardiovascular effects elicited by angiotensin-(1-7) [Ang-(1-7)] in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) and caudal pressor area (CPA) of the ventrolateral medulla (VLM) of anesthetized rats. Furthermore the role of endogenous angiotensins in these areas was also investigated. The pressor effect produced by unilateral microinjection of Ang-(1-7) into the RVLM or CPA was not modified by either the AT1 receptor antagonist… CONTINUE READING
