    ..Furthermore, the attenuated erectile function of DOCA-salt hypertensive rats was fully restored by ANG-(1-7) administration. Together these data provide strong evidence for a key role of the ANG-(1-7)-Mas axis in erectile function. ..

    ..In all tissues examined, including tongue, biallelic expression of the MAS gene was observed. Hence both MAS and the neighboring IGF2R gene are not imprinted in humans. ..
