Part Descriptions

LP15389-7   Angiotensin II
The active form of angiotensin. An octapeptide found in blood, it is synthesized from ANGIOTENSIN I and quickly destroyed. Angiotensin II causes profound vasoconstriction with a resulting increase in blood pressure. It differs among species by the amino acid in position 5. The human form has ISOLEUCINE in this position. The clinically and experimentally used bovine form has VALINE in position 5. Medically useful antagonism is obtained with ACE INHIBITORS or with ANGIOTENSIN II TYPE 1 RECEPTOR BLOCKERS.

LP15389-7   Angiotensin II
Angiotensin II is an eight amino acid peptide formed by Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) cleavage of Angiotensin I. Angiotensin II is metabolized further to Angiotensin III. Angiotensin II release is controlled by Renin, blood pressure, blood volume, sodium balance and by Aldosterone concentration. Levels of Angiotensin II are increased in many types of hypertension. Angiotensin II stimulates the release of Anti-Diuretic Hormone, ACTH, Prolactin, Luteinizing Hormone, Oxytocin and Aldosterone. Angiotensin II increases vasoconstriction and inhibits tubular resorption of sodium, and can increase endothelial cell growth. Source: Inter Science Institute, Inter Science Institute
