Abstract

The Renin-Angiotensin (RAS) and Kalikrein-Kinin (KKS) systems play an important role in the regulation of several physiological and pathologic processes related to the control of blood pressure and also affect a large number of processes such as cell growth and proliferation, pain and inflammation, among others. The main effector substance of the RAS is angiotensin II (Ang II), and those of the KKS are bradykinin (BK) and other kinins. Kinins, as well as Ang II act through the activation of G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs): angiotensin receptors AT1 and AT2, and BK receptors B1 e B2 Due to their importance in physiopathological processes involving the regulation of the blood pressure, and because of the great homology between their receptors, the RAS and the KKS have been the object of study of our laboratories, involving molecular modeling and site-directed mutagenesis of the AT1 receptor, conformational studies of synthetic peptides related to the AT1 receptor and their interaction with membranes, and various aspects of the molecular biology of the two systems.
