Background: MAS1 belongs to the family of MAS-related orphan G protein coupled receptors, which are primarily expressed in primary sensory neurons and mast cells. The MAS-related GPCRs may be implicated in nociception, pruritus, sleep, cell proliferation, circulation, and mast cell degranulation. The MAS1 receptor when activated by binding angiotensin-(1-7) opposes many of the effects of angiotensin-II activated angiotensin receptor. Receptor agonists have similar therapeutic effects as angiotensin-II receptor antagonists including lowering blood pressure. Angiotensin peptide metabolites including angiotensin-III have also been reported to activate MAS1.
