Interaction Information:

Comment The angiotensin 2 (ANG2) receptors are found within the islet, and AT1R is mainly found in the islet core where the beta cells responsible for insulin secretion are located. The angiotensin II type 2 receptor (AT2R) is found in nearby delta cells that secrete somatostatin. Angiotensin-convertingenzyme 2 (ACE2) is expressed by alpha cells and the islet micro-vasculature, though the latter is more implicated in glycemic homeostasis and islet maintenance.
