The ventrolateral medulla. A new site of action of the renin-angiotensin system.


High-affinity binding sites for angiotensin II (Ang II) in the ventrolateral medulla suggest that Ang II may act at cell groups that are known to modulate blood pressure. This hypothesis was investigated by the topical application of angiotensin I (Ang I), Ang II, the Ang II antagonist [Sar1, Thr8]Ang II, and the Ang I converting enzyme inhibitor MK 422 to… (More)
