The angiotensin system elements in invertebrates.

Abstract

In this review, the different components of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in invertebrates are discussed. This system is implicated in osmoregulation, reproduction, memory processes and immune system regulation. As the elements of this hormone-enzymatic system also exist in invertebrates, it appears that the RAS originated very early in evolution.
