Two dissimilar AT(1) agonists distinctively activate AT(1) receptors located on the luminal membrane of coronary endothelium.

Diverse intracoronary agonists cause cardiac effects while acting on coronary endothelial luminal membrane (CELM) receptor. Our data show: a) the presence of AT(1)R in isolated CELM and in all cardiac cell types and b) sustained intracoronary infusions of Ang II-POL, a large sized molecule (approximately 15,000 kDa) confined to the vessel lumen that can… CONTINUE READING
