A growing body of evidence suggests that angiotensin II, the effector protein of the renin-angiotensin system, is intimately involved with cell growth in target tissues. Most recently, evidence has been provided to indicate that angiotensin II is capable of inducing a hypertrophic response in cultured arterial smooth muscle cells. At the same time, considerable evidence has been developed to indicate that local analogs of the systemic renin-angiotensin system exist in multiple tissues and, in… CONTINUE READING
