Bradykinin B2 receptor does not contribute to blood pressure lowering during AT1 receptor blockade.

AT1 receptor antagonists inhibit very selectively the AT1 receptor and completely prevent activities mediated via this receptor. Through prevention of the angiotensin IImediated inhibition of renin liberation, the formation of angiotensin II is increased which, via a stimulation of AT2-receptors, can lead to de novo synthesis of bradykinin and a stimulation of B2 receptor. , by inhibition of ACE is, in contrast, the subject of dispute. ACE inhibitors inhibit the formation of angiotensin II and suppress AT1 and AT2 receptor-mediated activities.
