Interaction Information:

Comment Ang II-induced kidney damage and diabetic nephropathy are aggravated in ACE2-deficient mice, and the Ang II effects are ameliorated by recombinant ACE2 in wild-type animals. Ang-(1–7) infusion reverts diabetic renal damage in mice and rats, and Mas agonists protect the kidney from ischemia/reperfusion damage. The mechanism involved in most of these cases seems to be a reductionin oxidative stress and reduced fibrosis by the components of the ACE2/Ang-(1–7)/Mas axis.
