Technical Data
Angiotensin II (Hypertensin II, Ang II)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: RT
Ang II plays an important role in regulating natriuretic peptide gene expression during cardiac overload. ANP and BNP gene expression in the rat heart is modulated by the adrenal factors during Ang II-stimulated hemodynamic stress and the AT1 receptor antagonism in NO-deficient hypertension. Moreover, ventricular BNP gene expression in Ang II-induced hypertension in vivo is controlled by posttranscriptional mechanisms and GATA elements.

SAA equence: H-Asp-Arg-Val-Tyr-Ile-His-Pro-Phe-OH acetate salt

The sequence given for angiotensin II corresponds to the sequences of human, horse, sheep, pig and rat angiotensins.
