Example sentences for: angiotensin

How can you use “angiotensin” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The p38 pathway has demonstrated a different time course of activation via G- protein coupled receptors than the ERK pathway [ 24 ] . Using the time point (30 min) at which angiotensin II demonstrates maximal stimulation of the JNK pathway we performed a concentration response curve (10 -9- 10 -5M) to 5-HT in vascular smooth muscle cells.

  • 9 fold increased risk for the factor V Leiden mutation and a 2.7 fold increased risk for the deletion/deletion polymorphism of the angiotensin converting enzyme gene) would have been required to detect a significant difference between the prevalence of these mutations in our case and control groups.

  • [ 23] found no association between the Factor V Leiden mutation and deep venous thrombosis, they did find that the deletion-deletion genotype of the angiotensin converting enzyme was strongly associated with postoperative venous thrombosis in 85 patients who had undergone total hip arthroplasty (30 of whom had a thromboembolic event as detected by routine compression duplex ultrasound).

  • The angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) digests angiotensin I to angiotensin II (a potent vasoconstrictor) and is thus involved with the regulation of vascular tone.

  • Recently, it has been noted that the JNK and p38 pathways can be activated by G-protein coupled receptor agonists, notably angiotensin II, in vascular smooth muscle cells [ 19 20 ] . In cardiac myocytes, both the p38 and JNK pathways have been activated by endothelin-1 (ET-1) and the α 1 adrenergic receptor agonist phenylephrine [ 21 ] . The ability of the JNK and p38 pathways to be activated by the same agonists of G-protein coupled receptors which activate the ERK pathway led to the investigation of 5-HT as a possible activator of the JNK and p38 pathways.
