General information

  • In the classical RAS, circulating renal-derived renin cleaves angiotensinogen, a protein principally synthesized in the liver, to form the decapeptide angiotensin I (Ang I), an inactive substance. Subsequently, conversion of Ang I to Ang II occurs rapidly by the action of the dipeptidyl carboxypeptidase angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) in the lungs. [1]
