« 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 [10]), which have around 30% sequence similarity. Endogenous ligands are angiotensin II (AGT, P01019) and angiotensin III (AGT, P01019) (Ang III), while angiotensin I (AGT, P01019) is weakly active in some systems.
