Renin-angiotensin system blockade: Effect on renal mRNA expression in 5/6 nephrectomized rats

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determinate the gene expression levels of angiotensinogen, angiotensin converting enzyme, renin, (pro)renin receptor, and the final rennin-angiotensin system (RAS) products Angiotensin (Ang) II and Ang 1-7 in the remnant kidney of 5/6 nephrectomized rats and its response to RAS pharmacological blockade. Male Wistar rats were… (More)
