  1. ncbi The intracellular renin-angiotensin system in the heart
    Rajesh Kumar
    Curr Hypertens Rep 11:104-10. 2009
    ..We describe the physiology of the intracellular RAS, potential pathologic roles of intracellular Ang II, and the relevance of the intracellular system in view of recent clinical trials involving various RAS inhibitors...
  2. pmc Angiotensin type 1a receptor-deficient mice develop diabetes-induced cardiac dysfunction, which is prevented by renin-angiotensin system inhibitors
