Keynote Address Pathways of Angiotensin Formation and Function in the Brain


New findings from this laboratory suggest that fragments of angiotensin derived from the amino (N-)terminus are biologically active end products of the renin-angiotensin system. In vitro and in vivo experiments revealed that the heptapeptide angiotensin-(l-7) [Ang-(l-7)] is a major endogenous product of the renin-angiotensin system cascade in the brains of… (More)
