Title:Renin-angiotensin system-related highlights from the High Blood Pressure Research Conference annual meeting
Creators Name:Luft, F.C.
Abstract:The High Blood Pressure Research Conference of the American Heart Association is a theoretical meeting for hypertension researchers who direct their attention to hypertension-related basic disease mechanisms. The items that I have selected for this brief review are molecular intracellular receptor function, novel angiotensin (Ang)-related pathways, including Ang-(1-7), the Mas receptor, and angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, oxidative stress, immunity, the (pro)renin receptor, and until now unappreciated signalling pathways, such as the tonicity element binding protein.
Keywords:Angiotensins, Hypertension, Immunity, NADPH Oxidase, NFATC Transcription Factors, Cell Surface Receptors, G-Protein-Coupled Receptors, Renin-Angiotensin System, Animals, Mice, Rats
