We have previously demonstrated that stimulation of the angiotensin (Ang) II type 2 receptor in vascular smooth muscle cells caused bradykinin production by activating kininogenase in transgenic mice. The aim of this study was to determine whether overexpression of AT2 receptors in cardiomyocytes attenuates Ang II–induced cardiomyocyte hypertrophy or… CONTINUE READING
