Overexpression of the renin-angiotensin system in human visceral adipose tissue in normal and overweight subjects.

Abstract

To evaluate the expression of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) genes in visceral (VAT) and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) in normotensive subjects with different body mass index (BMI). Adipose tissue was obtained from 22 normotensive (12 normal weight and 10 overweight) patients during surgery for colecystectomy. Angiotensinogen (AGT), angiotensin II… (More)
