Angiotensin
Volume 1
edited by Thomas Unger

Angiotensin Volume 1 calls attention to its many functions. This second edition of the volume on Angiotensin provides an updated account of the knowledge and findings accumulated since the complexity of angiotensin was recognized.

Presents the recent shifts in research, covering the genetics, receptors, regulation, signaling pathways, and more. Also offers an overview of the fundamentals and the connection to a number of biological phenomena.
