Catalog Number: 1562
Alternate Names: [Ile5]Angiotensin I (1-7), Ang-(1-7)
Biological Activity
Endogenous peptide fragment. Induces vasorelaxation through release of NO and prostaglandins, perhaps through activation of a non-AT1, non-AT2 receptor, Mas. Counteracts the vasoconstrictive and proliferative effects of angiotensin II and stimulates vasopressin (anti-diuretic hormone) release in vivo.
