Suppression of plasma aldosterone by chronic ACTH administration is offset by converting enzyme inhibitor.


In order to elucidate the mechanism of suppression of plasma aldosterone by chronic ACTH administration, especially the role of the renin-angiotensin system and dopamine, we administered ACTH with or without MK422, a converting enzyme inhibitor, to reduce the endogenous angiotensin II in rats, and measured the plasma renin activity, plasma corticoid… (More)
