Locally synthesized renin could conceivably function in an endocrine, paracrine or autocrine manner. Isolated left ventricular cardiac myocytes of the rat were examined in the present study and renin and angiotensin II were detected in these cells. This observation suggests the existence of a functioning renin-angiotensin system in the heart and, more particularly, in the left ventricular… CONTINUE READING
