Interaction Information:

Comment Mas deficiency in mice induces a metabolic syndrome-like state, with dyslipidemia, lower glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity, hyperinsulinemia, decreased glucose uptake in white adipose cells, and an increase in adipose tissue mass. In accordance, chronically increased Ang-(1–7) levels in transgenic rats reduce the amount of fat tissue and plasma lipid levels and enhance glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity.
