Nearly thirty years in the past, in 1974, the quantity on Angiotensin edited through Irvine H.Page and F. Merlin Bumpus increased the guide of Experimental Pharmacology. Even after twenty years the multiplicity of its activities appears to be like to not were absolutely came upon. to name recognition to its many services is among the reasons of this e-book. This re-creation of the amount on Angiotensin makes an attempt to supply an up-to-date account of the data and findings collected because the complexity of angiotensin used to be so adequately recognized.

1969; Nishimura et al. 1973, 1980). Avian kidneys possess macula densa cells that have some characteristics of a mammalian macula densa (Sokabe et al. 1969). Therefore, the JG apparatus in birds represents a transitional JG apparatus between the primitive and mammalian types. It therefore appears that the vascular component of the JG apparatus evolved phylogeneti- 36 H. Nishimura cally earlier than the macula dens a, the tubular component. This is important when we consider the function of the RAS in nonmammalian vertebrates.
1973) or from tyrosine (snake Ang 1) (Nakayama et al. 1977) to histidine (turtle and mammalian Ang I) requires a one-point mutation of the triplet sequence of the DNA code (Takei et al. 1993b), whereas a two-nucleotide difference exists between alanine and tyrosine (or histidine) (Takei et al. 1993b) and between serine (avian Ang 1) and histidine. This structural difference in Ang I agrees with the notion that the evolutionary line leading to the mammals departed from the reptilian-avian line at a very early stage of tetrapod evolution and that the crocodilians are phylogenetically closer to avians.
