True versus immunoreactive angiotensin II in human plasma

J NussbergerH R Brunner


To measure specifically angiotensin-(1-8)octapeptide, peptides were extracted from 2 ml of plasma by reversible adsorption to bonded-phase silica. The angiotensin-(1-8)octapeptide was then isolated by isocratic reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography and quantified by radioimmunoassay. The extraction recovery of 125I-angiotensin II added to 2 ml of plasma was 99 +/- 2% (mean +/- SD). The overall recovery of 5, 10, and 20 fmol unlabeled angiotensin II added to 1 ml of plasma was 80 +/- 10%. The coefficient of variation for within-assay precision was 0.06 and for between-assay precision 0.13. The detection limit was 0.4 fmol/ml. Buffer and plasma blanks were below the detection limit. Normal subjects on a free diet in supine position averaged 4.2 +/- 1.7 fmol/ml angiotensin-(1-8)octapeptide. Furosemide (40 mg p.o.) and standing increased these values to 22 +/- 7.6 fmol/ml. In four volunteers, immunoreactive "angiotensin II" (more or less angiotensin-like material) was measured serially before and after converting-enzyme inhibition (Hoe 498) with conventional Dowex extraction. At peak inhibition, plasma immunoreactive "angiotensin II" levels decreased by only 44%. In contrast, angiotensin-(1-8)-octapeptide isolated b...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.
