The circulating renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is a classic endocrine system that regulates cardiovascular homeostasis during physiologic and pathologic states. Accumulated evidence has shown the presence of components of RAS in various tissues, which are upregulated in certain pathological conditions. Locally produced angiotensin (Ang)II may play an important role in tissue repair/remodeling in autocrine and/or paracrine manners. Following acute myocardial infarction (MI), cardiac repair… CONTINUE READING
