Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
Quinapril is converted to active metabolite quinaprilat. Quinaprilat is an ACE inhibitor which Inhibits the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II, which in turn decreases blood pressure. Also causes an increase in plasma renin activity. As a prodrug this compound is unlikely to have significant ACE inhibitory activity. Therefore we have not tagged a primary target for this compound.
