Test ID: FANGI    
Angiotensin I, Plasma

Clinical Information Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test

Angiotensin I is a ten amino acid peptide formed by Renin cleavage of

Angiotensinogen (Renin Substrate). Angiotensin I has little biological

activity except that high levels can stimulate Catecholamine production.

It is metabolized to its biologically  active byproduct Angiotensin II by

Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE). The formation of Angiotensin I is

controlled by negative feedback of Angiotensin II and II on Renin

release and by Aldosterone concentration. Levels of Angiotensin I are

increased in many types of hypertension. Angiotensin I levels are used

to determine Renin activity. Angiotensin I is excreted directly into the

urine.
