Regulation by angiotensin II of its receptors in resistance blood vessels.


The sensitivity of blood vessels to the vasoconstrictor effects of the hormone angiotensin II appears to be modulated by the activity of the renin-angiotensin system. Elevation of circulating angiotensin II levels by sodium depletion or renal artery stenosis is associated with a diminished pressor response to infused angiotensin II (refs 1-3). Conversely… (More)
