Newly developed angiotensin II-infused experimental models in vascular biology.

Angiotensin II is a major vasoactive peptide in the renin-angiotensin system (RAS). In vitro evidence demonstrates that this peptide can modulate the function of various adhesion molecules, chemokines, cytokines and growth factors, and ultimately contributes to cell proliferation, hypertrophy and inflammation. Moreover, in vivo studies further support that… CONTINUE READING
