Angiotensin and Blood Pressure Regulation: Angiotensin and by Joseph Harding

By Joseph Harding

Angiotensin and Blood strain rules examines the function of angiotensin in blood strain legislation, with emphasis on its skill to steer the inotropic country at once through activation of myocardial receptors and in some way by way of potentiating the discharge of catecholamines from sympathetic nerve terminals. The ebook additionally explains how angiotensin acts on to control thirst and sodium urge for food, and through antidiuretic hormone to manage water reabsorption within the kidney.
This ebook is produced from 8 chapters and starts with a overview of the neuronal activities of angiotensin, basically these within the mind, in addition to the positioning and serve as of mind angiotensin II receptors. the results of angiotensin on parts of the vascular wall and myocardium also are mentioned, besides its functionality in hypovolemia, replica, and neurotransmission. next chapters discover a few simple and useful concerns of the renin-angiotensin procedure within the mind; the biochemical processing that's required for angiotensin activation and inactivation; how angiotensin impacts peripheral resistance; and the efficiency of angiotensin III as a pressor and dipsogenic agent in normotensive and hypertensive animal versions.
This monograph should be an invaluable source for pharmacologists and physiologists.
