Considerable evidence now indicates that a separate and distinct renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is present within the brain. The necessary precursors and enzymes required for the formation and degradation of the biologically active forms of angiotensins have been identified in brain tissues as have angiotensin binding sites. Although this brain RAS appears to be regulated independently from the peripheral RAS, circulating angiotensins do exert a portion of their actions via stimulation of brain… CONTINUE READING
