Associated with this action is the influence on blood pressure and circulation—especially the hemodynamics of the kidney, which in turn affects diuresis and thus the electrolyte excretion. Angiotensin and renin, however, are not solely responsible for the adjustment of blood pressure. The postulated relation between the angiotensinrenin system and renal hypertension is doubtful.
These authors had determined for the isolated rat uterus that the activity of angiotensin I is about 2-5% that of angiotensin II. Angiotensin I shows about 60% of the activity of angiotensin II when administered to the isolated guinea pig ileum (461). Carlini and Huggins (460) observed strong contraction of the rat uterus when 5 X 10"9 g/ml angiotensin II was applied, while a tenfold amount of angiotensin I produces no effect at all. The decapeptide A. TISSUE HORMONES (KININ HORMONES) 17 was inactive in perfused isolated rat liver (2132) and on isolated rabbit aortic strips (987, 988).
