Angiotensin II, Angiotensin, Ang II, angiotensin I
The protein encoded by this gene, pre-angiotensinogen or angiotensinogen precursor, is expressed in the liver and is cleaved by the enzyme renin in response to lowered blood pressure. The resulting product, angiotensin I, is then cleaved by angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) to generate the physiologically active enzyme angiotensin II. The protein is involved in maintaining blood pressure and in the pathogenesis of essential hypertension and preeclampsia. Mutations in this gene are associated with susceptibility to essential hypertension, and can cause renal tubular dysgenesis, a severe disorder of renal tubular development. Defects in this gene have also been associated with non-familial structural atrial fibrillation, and inflammatory bowel disease. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Rice et al., London, United Kingdom. In Pain, Feb 2016
One notable exception is the angiotensin II type 2 (AT2) receptor that has clinical validity on the basis of a successful double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, clinical trial of EMA401, a highly selective, orally active, peripherally restricted AT2 receptor antagonist in patients with postherpetic neuralgia.

Eguchi et al., Australia. In Annu Rev Pharmacol Toxicol, Feb 2016
The capacity of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) agonists, such as angiotensin II (AngII), to promote EGFR signaling is called transactivation and is well described, yet delineating the molecular processes and functional relevance of this crosstalk has been challenging.

The Role of CNS in the Effects of Salt on Blood Pressure.
Fujita et al., Tokyo, Japan. In Curr Hypertens Rep, Jan 2016
Several other factors such as mineralocorticoid receptors, aldosterone, corticosterone, epithelial sodium channels, and angiotensin II also play important roles in central sympathetic activation, some of which can be associated with brain oxidative stress.
Interleukin-1 Receptor Activation Potentiates Salt Reabsorption in Angiotensin II-Induced Hypertension via the NKCC2 Co-transporter in the Nephron.
Crowley et al., Durham, United States. In Cell Metab, Jan 2016
While the efficacy of renin angiotensin system (RAS) blockade in lowering blood pressure illustrates that the RAS is broadly activated in human hypertension, the frequent failure of RAS inhibition to prevent or reverse hypertensive organ damage highlights the need for novel therapies to combat RAS-dependent hypertension.

Nishida et al., Okazaki, Japan. In Sci Signal, Dec 2015
The angiotensin (Ang) type 1 receptor (AT1R) promotes functional and structural integrity of the arterial wall to contribute to vascular homeostasis, but this receptor also promotes hypertension.
