Liver angiotensin II receptors in the rat: binding properties and regulation by dietary Na+ and angiotensin II.

Recent evidence suggests that angiotensin II (AII) acts on the liver via specific receptors. The aims of this study were to examine the general binding properties of these receptors in the rat and to determine the role of dietary Na+ and AII in the regulation of AII receptors. Binding of 125I-labelled Ile5-AII to liver membranes was saturable and behaved as… CONTINUE READING
