BACKGROUND Alternative pathways of angiotensin II biosynthesis play a significant role in the renin-angiotensin system. In this study porcine renal tissue was investigated for angiotensin II-generating enzymes. METHODS AND RESULTS Protein extracts from porcine renal tissue were fractionated by liquid chromatography and tested for their angiotensin II-generating activity by the mass-spectrometry-assisted enzyme screening system (MES) and the active fractions were purified to near homogeneity… CONTINUE READING
