Data Sheet

Background: AT1 (Angiotensin II, type 1) receptor is an angiotensin receptor with vasopressor effects and regulates aldosterone secretion. It is essential in controlling blood pressure and volume in the cardiovascular system. AT1 receptor antagonists are drugs useful in the treatment of hypertension, diabetic nephropathy and congestive heart failure. Blockade of AT1 receptors could also be a novel approach in the treatment of mood disorders and neurodegenerative diseases of the brain.

Application: Functional assays
