Local renin angiotensin system and the brain-A continuous quest for knowledge

Item Type:Review
Title:Local renin angiotensin system and the brain-A continuous quest for knowledge
Creators Name:Baltatu, O.C. and Campos, L.A. and Bader, M.
Abstract:The ancient renin-angiotensin system (RAS) was discovered more than a hundred years ago by identifying the rate-limiting enzyme of the system and its relevance to blood pressure regulation. Forty years ago, Detlev Ganten et al postulated the existence of a tissue RAS. In these forty years, he kept developing the knowledge of these systems either directly or by training or attracting the interest of many researchers. Through the present review, we try to highlight recent advancements that originated from the postulation of local brain RAS. Although a large amount of knowledge accumulated, this system continues to intrigue and stimulate the interest and imagination of many researchers.
