Interaction Information:

Comment ANG II promotes a range of pro-apoptotic, inflammatory, fibrotic and edema-associated processes in the alveolar microenvironment. The epithelium becomes compromised, paving the way for secondary infection (e.g., bacterial pneumonia). As a result, immune response is further enhanced. On the opposite, ACE2 and ANG (1-7) reduce pulmonary injury.
