  1. 1. The renin-angiotensin system in renal tubulogenesis. Experimental studies in the rat

    Författare :Daina Lasaitiene; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :angiotensin II; extracellular matrix; inflammation; mitochondrial biogenesis; renal development; renin-angiotensin system; thick ascending limb of Henle; tubulogenesis;

    Sammanfattning : The kidney and the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) are vital regulators of blood pressure and salt-water balance. In order to appropriately regulate circulatory homeostasis, the kidney must undergo normal development, in which the RAS plays a crucial role. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The Renin Angiotensin System in the Human Esophageal Mucosa − expression, actions and potential involvement in reflux disease

    Författare :Eleonora Björkman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; endoscopic biopsies; epithelial electrical current; epithelial electrical resistance; esophageal mucosae; gastroesophageal reflux disease; mucosal barrier integrity; renin angiotensin system;

    Sammanfattning : The renin angiotensin system (RAS) is a classical endocrine system, regulating body fluid balance and blood circulation. Recent research has shown that the system is being also locally expressed and active in several organs and tissues. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Pharmacogenetic Studies of Antihypertensive Treatment : With Special Reference to the Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System

    Författare :Lisa Kurland; Heribert Schunkert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; pharmacogenetics; hypertension; renin-angiotension-aldosterone system; gene polymorphisms; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Hypertension is common and constitutes an increased risk of morbidity and mortality of cardiovascular disease. Antihypertensive treatment will reduce this risk; the individual patient's response to treatment, however, is difficult to predict. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The kallikrein-kinin system in primary hypertension : dynamics of circulating components of the kallikrein-kinin system in relation to the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system

    Författare :K. Peter Öhman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :aldosterone; angiotensin Il; blood pressure; human; prekallikrein; renin; tissue kallikrein; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Kinins are potent vasodilatory and blood pressure lowering peptides, with additional effects on renal handling of electrolytes and water. The kallikrein-kinin system consists of two separate entities, one confined to the circulation and the other to both tissues and the circulation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. On angiotensin II receptor type 2 receptors in the small intestine

    Författare :Sara Ewert; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :renin-angiotensin; angiotensin; small intestine; mucosa; epithelium; AT1; AT2; bradykinin; BK2 receptor; nitric oxide; iNOS; smooth muscle; contractility;

    Sammanfattning : The endocrine renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is important in the regulation of extracellular fluid volume and systemic blood pressure in strenuous conditions such as hypovolemia. Also present locally in peripheral tissues, all components of RAS are expressed and have been shown to modulate development, cell growth and inflammation. LÄS MER
