Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The renin-angiotensin system plays multiple roles in the maintenance of normal blood pressure and renal function. The balance and integration of these roles change during development in ways that we do not yet fully understand. This article reviews the ways in which the renin-angiotensin system maintains normal cardiovascular homeostasis during development and its participation in physiologic and biochemical events.
