Overview

« Hide More detailed introduction

The actions of angiotensin II (AGT, P01019) (Ang II) are mediated by AT1 and AT2 receptors (nomenclature as agreed by the NC-IUPHAR Subcommittee on Angiotensin receptors [11,19]), which have around 30% sequence similarity. The decapeptide angiotensin I (AGT, P01019), the octapeptide angiotensin II (AGT, P01019) and the heptapeptide angiotensin III (AGT, P01019) are endogenous ligands. Losartan, candesartan, telmisartan, etc. are clinically used AT1 receptor blockers.
