The exact tissue site of angiotensin generation (extracellular fluid, cell surface, intracellular compartment) is still being debated. In this review, we discuss the various possibilities, taking into consideration the intracellular occurrence/absence of prorenin, renin, angiotensinogen, angiotensin-converting enzyme, and angiotensin receptors; the local activation of… CONTINUE READING
