  • Because AT 2 receptor expression is developmentally regulated, and its activation has been described as inhibitory to flow-mediated dilation in hypertensive animals, Pinaud et al, 7 in this issue, hypothesized that AT 2 receptor function might behave differently in the resistance arteries of aged rats compared with nonaged control adult rats.

  • To determine the effect of sustained increases in AT 1A receptor density or activity in rostral ventrolateral medulla, we used radiotelemetry to monitor blood pressure in conscious rats before and after bilateral microinjection into the rostral ventrolateral medulla of adenoviruses encoding the wild-type AT 1A receptor or a constitutively active version of the receptor (Asn 111 Gly, [N111G]AT 1A ). (ahajournals.org)
  • Rats receiving the wild-type AT 1A receptor showed no change in blood pressure, whereas animals receiving the [N111G]AT 1A receptor displayed an increase in blood pressure that persisted for 3 to 4 days before returning to basal levels. (ahajournals.org)
  • 12 We report here that glial expression of the [N111G]AT 1A receptor in the RVLM, but not the wild-type receptor, raised blood pressure in conscious rats, indicating that increased receptor activity (and not mere overexpression) is required to drive efferent pathways. (ahajournals.org)
  • Heart weight, AT1 receptor mRNA in cardiac and aortic tissues, and abundance of p38MAPK were significantly increased in rats on high sodium diet. (biomedsearch.com)
  • secretion
  • Angiotensin II (Ang II) exerts profound physiological effects on the cardiovascular system by regulating such diverse functions as increases in blood pressure (BP), extracellular fluid volume, hormone secretion, vascular and cardiac remodeling, stimulation of sympathetic nerve activity, and damping of baroreflexes. (ahajournals.org)
  • Valsartan
  • The specific AT1 affinity relates to how specifically attracted the medicine is for the correct receptor, the US FDA PI rates for AT1 affinity are as follows: Losartan 1000-fold Telmisartan 3000-fold Irbesartan 8500-fold Candesartan greater than 10000-fold Olmesartan 12500-fold Valsartan 30000-fold Saprisartan The third area needed to complete the overall efficacy picture of an ARB is its biological half-life. (wikipedia.org)
  • Valsartan blocks the angiotensin II receptor type 1 (AT1). (wikipedia.org)
  • tyrosine kinases
  • The activated receptor in turn couples to Gq/11 and Gi/o and thus activates phospholipase C and increases the cytosolic Ca2+ concentrations, which in turn triggers cellular responses such as stimulation of protein kinase C. Activated receptor also inhibits adenylate cyclase and activates various tyrosine kinases. (wikipedia.org)

  • Despite sustained levels of [N111G]AT 1A receptor expression in RVLM, this elevated blood pressure returned toward control levels by post-injection day 4, signifying the presence of important counterregulatory processes that dampen AT 1 R actions at this crucial relay point for sympathetic vasomotor tone.

(mcmaster.ca)
  • With three photosensitive analogs of AngII in which Asp1, Val3 or Phe8 were substituted for Bpa, we demonstrated that the N-terminal part of AngII interacts with the extracellular tail of AT2 receptor and with the second extracellular loop of AT1 receptor whereas the C-terminal part of AngII interacts with the third transmembrane domain of AT2 receptor and with the seventh transmembrane domain of AT1 receptor.
