Abstract :

Research suggests that glomerular epithelial cells within the kidney react differently to the vasoconstrictor angiotensin II than other renal cell types. Evidence indicates that renal epithelial cells are directly involved with angiontensin I in glomerular filtration barrier control. Experiments designed to compare the effect of angiotensin II on glomerular epithelial cells, proximal tubular epithelial cells and mesangial cells are described.
