G. // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Jan2007, Vol. 99 Issue 2, p121 

    The present study aimed to characterize cardiac hypertrophy induced by activation of the renin–angiotensin system in terms of functional alterations on the level of the contractile proteins, employing transgenic rats harboring the mouse renin gene (TGR(mREN2)27). Ca2+-dependent tension...

    We previously developed a model of acute cyclosporine A (CsA)-induced vasomotor nephrotoxicity in rabbits. In the present study, we evaluated the role of endothelin (ET), angiotensin II (AII) and adenosine in this experimental model. All animals received CsA (25 mg/kg/day) for 5 days. Renal...

    Adenosine, via activation of A1 receptors on the afferent arteriole (AA), mediates the tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) mechanism. Angiotensin II and nitric oxide (NO) can modulate the sensitivity of the TGF mechanism. However, the interaction among these substances in regulating the TGF...

    Background. Angiotensin II (Ang II) action on H[sup +]-ATPase is not clearly defined, and may vary with renal tubule segment and hormonal doses being studied. Since an increase of cytosolic calcium ([Ca[sup 2+]]i) can stimulate acid vesicle movement and exocytotic insertion of proton pumps, and...

    Converting enzyme inhibition causes hypocitraturia independent of acidosis or hypokalemia. Background. Angiotensin II stimulates the proximal tubular Na/H antiporter and increases proximal tubular cell pH. Because intracellular pH may affect urinary citrate excretion and enzymes responsible for...

    Adenosine (Ado) mediates vasoconstriction via A1-Ado receptors and vasodilation via A2-Ado receptors in the kidney. It interacts with angiotensin II (Ang II), which is important for renal hemodynamics and tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF). The aim was to investigate the function of Ado receptors...

    Olmesartan, as a new angiotensin II receptor blocker, has shown beneficial effects on cardiovascular diseases. Nevertheless, the effect of olmesartan on ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in the hypertensive heart has not been investigated. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the...

    The endothelium expresses abundantly an adenosine A2A receptor (A2AR) which has important roles in the regulation of vascular function. The endothelium expresses also the AT1-type receptor for angiotensin II (AngII) which has been found to activate a reactive oxygen species (ROS)-generating...
