Previous studies showed that different polymorphisms in AT1R and AT2R
gens have various effects on hypertension (15, 16).
The processes are mediated by the activation of receptors belonging to the RAAS among which are the family of Ang receptors (ATjR, AT2R
, AT4R, and AT7R), the prorenin receptor, the MAS receptor (MASR), and the MET (METR) receptor; the last of which has an activity mediated by the insulin-regulated aminopeptidase receptor (IRAP) [52, 53].

agonist NP6A4 on stress response of nutrient-starved cardiovascular cells," PLoS ONE, vol.
In addition, western blotting revealed that local expression of AT1R in SHR was significantly higher compared to WKY (Figure 5(c), P < 0.001), whereas AT2R
was markedly decreased (Figure 5(d), P < 0.001).
The following genes had significant association with diabetic nephropathy: eNOS, AT2R
, SUMO4, IL-10, VEGF, MTHFR, ACE, and VDR.
Synthesized Ang II within the cell binds to intracellular and/or nuclear AT1R, AT2R
, or Mas receptors and activates downstream signalling pathways.
Otra alternativa mas reciente es el estudio de las variaciones geneticas de la ECA y de los receptores de la AII tipo 1 (AT1R) y tipo 2 (AT2R
Classically, angiotensin II (Ang II) mediates its action via the Ang II type 1 (AT1R) and type 2 (AT2R
Deparaffinized tissue sections were processed for immunohistochemistry as described elsewhere  using primary antibodies to AT1R (Santa Cruz Biotechnology, TX, USA), AT2R
(Novus Biologicals, CO, USA), MasR (Novus Biologicals, CO, USA), 8-hydroxy-2'deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG, Japan Institute for the Control of Aging, Shizuoka, Japan), and 3-nitrotyrosine (Santa Cruz Biotechnology, TX, USA).
suggests that the chronic antihypertensive and anti-inflammatory effects of Compound 21 (a selective angiotensin type 2 receptor (AT2R
) agonist) in DOCA/NaCl-induced female hypertensive rats may function through female sex hormones.
Effects of Blocking AT1R, AT2R
, and IGF-1R on ERK1/2 and AKT Activation.
Several components of the RAS were analyzed including renin, prorenin receptor (PRR), angiotensinogen (AGT), angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), ACE2, angiotensin II type 1 (AT1R) and 2 receptor (AT2R
), and angiotensin (1-7) MAS receptor.
