Eight borderline hypertensive ADPKD patients with (near) normal renal function and seven matched healthy control subjects were investigated at three levels of daily dietary sodium intake: 150, 50 and 450 mmol. In the 450-mmol sodium intake period we studied the effects of renally formed dopamine by infusing its precursor DOPA (DOPAi.v., 7 micrograms kg-1 min-1). In the 50-mmol sodium intake period we studied the influence of the RAAS by administering enalaprilate (42 micrograms kg-1), followed by angiotensin II (12 ng kg-1 min-1) intravenously. GFR and ERPF were measured by continuous infusion of inulin and PAH.

Polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) participate in the development of myocardial injury during ischaemia/reperfusion and granules released by human neutrophils contain proteases capable of activating prorenin in human plasma and can cleave angiotensin II directly from angiotensin I and angiotensinogen. The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitors exert an in vitro effect on PMN degranulation. Isolated neutrophils were incubated with captopril, lisinopril, enalaprilat or ramiprilat and release of lysozyme and myeloperoxidase was measured from unstimulated and opsonised zymosan stimulated cells. All ACE inhibitors increased neutrophil myeloperoxidase release and lysozyme release by both unstimulated and stimulated cells. In the presence of saline unstimulated PMN released 4.48 +/- 0.68% and zymosan-stimulated cells released 7.28 +/- 0.76% of myeloperoxidase content and the enzyme release increased after incubation with captopril (5.55 +/- 0.71 and 8.74 +/- 0.72%), lisinopril (5.43 +/- 0.57 and 9.02 +/- 0.7%), enalaprilat (6.05 +/- 0.67 and 9.20 +/- 0.82%) and ramiprilat (5.82 +/- 0.69 and 9.26 +/- 0.74%), respectively. In the presence of saline unstimulated PMN released 16.71 +/- 1.28% and zymosanstimulated PMN released 34.42 +/- 1.71% of lysozyme content and the release increased after incubation with captopril (21.15 +/- 1.36 and 42.75 +/- 1.95%), lisinopril (23.95 +/- 1.26 and 39.23 +/- 1.94%), enalaprilat (21.34 +/- 1.32 and 41.59 +/- 1.99%) and ramiprilat (20.88 +/- 1.35 and 37.53 +/- 1.95%) by unstimulated PMN, respectively. The ACE-inhibitory effect of these drugs may therefore be decreased by stimulation of PMN degranulation and neutrophil-dependent angiotensin II forming pathway.

In the present study, we examined the effect of blockade of the brain stem renin-angiotensin system on renal sympathetic baroreflexes and chemoreflexes in conscious rabbits and examined the role of central catecholaminergic pathways in these responses. Eleven rabbits underwent preliminary surgical instrumentation and pretreatment with central 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA, 500 micrograms/kg) or ascorbic acid 6 wk before the commencement of the experiments. Baroreflex curves were determined under conditions of normoxia and hypoxia (10% O2 + 3% CO2) before and after central administration of either Ringer solution, the ANG II receptor antagonist losartan (10 micrograms), or the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat (500 ng) on separate days. Losartan increased the upper plateau and the range of the mean arterial pressure (MAP)-renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) curve (79 and 78%, respectively) in intact rabbits, whereas this effect was not observed in 6-OHDA-pretreated rabbits. Hypoxia elicited an increase in resting RSNA (111% in intact rabbits and 74% in 6-OHDA-injected rabbits) and elevated the upper plateau of the RSNA-MAP curve in both groups (89% in intact rabbits and 114% in 6-OHDA-injected rabbits). During hypoxia, losartan and enalaprilat increased the RSNA upper plateau in intact rabbits but had no effect in 6-OHDA-pretreated rabbits. No effects on the MAP-heart rate baroreflex curves were observed. Thus the effect of losartan to increase RSNA, particularly during hypoxia and baroreceptor unloading, being abolished by central noradrenergic depletion suggests that the endogenous ANG II which normally causes an inhibition of renal sympathetic motoneurons is dependent on the integrity of central catecholaminergic pathways.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors improve survival in heart failure and delay progression to clinical heart failure in patients with left ventricular dysfunction after myocardial infarction. Increasing numbers of older patients are being considered for such treatment. However, there are reports of excessive and prolonged decreases in blood pressure (BP) after the first dose of some ACE inhibitors. We have studied the hemodynamics, pharmacokinetics, and neurohumoral responses to the first dose of oral captopril 6.25 mg, enalapril 2.5 mg, perindopril 2.0 mg, intravenous enalaprilat 1.5 mg, and perindoprilat 1.0 mg, compared with oral or intravenous placebo in 6 parallel groups of 12 elderly patients each with moderate-to-severe (New York Heart Association classes II-IV) heart failure. Oral dosing with active drugs led to different temporal responses. After captopril, there was an early short-lived decrease in BP. Enalapril led to a later long-lasting decrease, but perindopril was not different from placebo. Intravenous enalaprilat and intravenous perindoprilat each lowered BP to a similar extent. The doses of drugs used appeared to be comparable because plasma ACE inhibition was similar following perindopril or enalapril and also comparing perindoprilat and enalaprilat. These studies indicate that oral ACE inhibitors have different profiles of acute BP changes after the first dose. The explanation is not clear, but could include physicochemical differences in the interaction between prodrug ester and diacid metabolites leading to differences in tissue distribution and local enzyme inhibition.

Dynamic capillary electrophoresis (DCE) and computer simulation of the elution profiles with the stochastic model has been applied to determine the isomerization barriers of the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat. The separation of the rotational cis-trans isomeric drug has been performed in an aqueous 20 mM borate buffer at pH 9.3. Interconversion profiles featuring plateau formation and peak broadening were observed. To evaluate the rate constants k(cis-->trans) and k(trans-->cis) of the cis-trans isomerization from the experimental electropherograms obtained by dynamic capillary electrophoresis, elution profiles were analyzed by a simulation with iterative convergence to the experimental data using the ChromWin software which requires the total migration times of the individual isomers t(R), the electroosmotic break-through time t(0), the plateau height h(plateau), the peak widths at half height of the individual isomers w(h), as well as the peak ratio of the isomers as experimental data input. From temperature-dependent measurements between 0 degrees and 15 degrees C the thermodynamic parameters Delta G, Delta H and Delta S, the rate constants k(cis-->trans) and k(trans-->cis) and the kinetic activation parameters Delta G*, Delta H*, and Delta S* of the cis-trans isomerization of enalaprilat were obtained. From the activation parameters the isomerization barriers at 37 degrees C were calculated to be Delta G* (trans-->cis) = 87.2 kJ.mol(-1) and Delta G*(cis-->trans) = 91.9 kJ.mol(-1).

vasotec dosing

The purpose of this study was to determine if the changes in renal function acutely produced by an inhibitor of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) in the sodium-depleted conscious marmoset can be explained primarily by blockade of the renin-angiotensin system. Intravenous injection of a dose of the ACEI, enalaprilate (2 mg/kg), that produced a maximal lowering of blood pressure (BP), also decreased renal vascular resistance and increased renal blood flow. Glomerular filtration rate was unchanged by enalaprilat, leading to a fall in the filtration fraction. In comparison, a dose of the renin inhibitory monoclonal antibody, R-3-36-16 (0.1 mg/kg), that also produced a maximal fall in BP, produced similar changes in renal hemodynamics to those observed after administration of the ACEI. Combined administration of 2 mg/kg enalaprilat and 0.1 mg/kg R-3-36-16 produced changes in BP and renal hemodynamics similar to those produced by the same doses of either agent administered alone. Enalaprilat (2 mg/kg) significantly increased urine volume (UV) and urinary sodium excretion (UNaV). In contrast, these parameters were not significantly altered by 0.1 mg/kg R-3-36-16. However, when given at a 10-fold higher dose, the monoclonal antibody produced an increase in UNaV and UV identical to that produced by the ACEI alone. Enalaprilat did not increase UV and UNaV excretion to a greater extent than the high dose of the renin inhibitory antibody. These results demonstrate that acute administration of an ACEI affects BP and renal function in the sodium-depleted conscious primate primarily by inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system.

Our study attempted to evaluate the importance of changes in the circulating renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and in hemodynamics in relation to observed changes in cardiovascular structure. We studied previously untreated men (n = 28) with essential nonmalignant hypertension and a supine casual diastolic blood pressure > 95 mm Hg on three to four separate (> 1-week interval) occasions measured in triplicate. We used intraarterial blood pressure, dye-dilution technique, plethysmography (hands), eye-ground photos, M-mode echocardiography, radio immunoassays, and multiple regression analysis. Patients were randomized to 6 months of double-blind treatment with either enalapril or hydrochlorothiazide, following 4 to 6 weeks on placebo. We found that enalapril blocked the plasma angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) with a secondary increment in plasma renin activity (PRA) and reductions in angiotensin II (AII) and aldosterone. Blood pressure was lowered through a reduction in total peripheral resistance (TPR). Hydrochlorothiazide increased PRA, AII, and aldosterone, and lowered blood pressure mainly through a reduction in cardiac output. Enalapril was significantly more effective than hydrochlorothiazide in reversing structural changes in the retinal and hand vasculature as well as in the heart. A reduction in cardiac hypertrophy was seen even in the occasional enalapril-treated patient, in whom little or no reduction in blood pressure occurred. In the stepwise regression analyses, the changes in retinal and hand vascular structure were most strongly related to various changes in the RAAS, explaining 15 to 34% of the variance. For the changes in cardiac structure, the type of therapy (enalapril or hydrochlorothiazide) appeared to be the most important factor, explaining between 29 and 50% of the variance. The changes in cardiac structure were even more strongly related to changes in the RAAS for the enalapril treated patients and explained up to 55% of the variance in cardiac structure. It can be concluded that the reversal of structural vascular changes during antihypertensive therapy was more dependent on the blockade of the RAAS than on lowering of the blood pressure.

The pharmacokinetics of enalapril (0.5 mg/kg i.v.) and the pharmacodynamics of enalapril (0.5 mg/kg PO) in 5 mares were investigated. After single i.v. dosing, concentrations of enalapril and enalaprilat, its active metabolite, were measured. Two weeks later, enalapril was administered by nasogastric tube. Potassium, creatinine, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), enalapril, and enalaprilat concentrations and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) activity were measured in serum. In addition, heart rate, blood pressure, digital venous blood gases, and lactate were measured. Two weeks later, enalapril was again administered by nasogastric tube. To mimic activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, angiotensin I (0.5 microg/kg) was administered at fixed intervals, followed by blood-pressure and heart-rate measurement. The elimination half lives of enalapril and enalaprilat were 0.59 and 1.25 hours, respectively, after i.v. administration. After PO administration, enalapril and enalaprilat were not detectable in serum. There was a tendency (P = .0625) toward a decrease in ACE activity 45-120 minutes after enalapril administration, but ACE activity suppression was never > 16%. There was a tendency (P = .0625) toward a decrease in mean arterial pressure (MAP) 6-8 hours after enalapril administration. Serum concentrations of potassium, creatinine, and BUN and digital venous blood gases and lactate concentrations did not change. In response to angiotensin I, there was a tendency (P = .0625) toward a decrease in the MAP response 4-24 hours after enalapril administration. Single-dose enalapril at 0.5 mg/kg PO did not demonstrate significant availability, pharmacodynamic effect, or substantial suppression of ACE activity.

Experiments were performed in vivo and in vitro to determine the effects of enalaprilat, a specific inhibitor of angiotensin-converting enzyme, on various aspects of the decidual cell reaction in rats. Ovariectomized, adult female rats were sensitized for the decidual cell reaction with steroid treatments. For in vivo experiments, intrauterine infusions of enalaprilat alone, and in combination with angiotensin II and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), were initiated on the day of uterine sensitivity. Enalaprilat inhibited the increases in uterine PG concentrations, endometrial vascular permeability, alkaline phosphatase activity and uterine weight that occurred sequentially following infusion of vehicle. Concurrent infusion of angiotensin II did not reverse any of these inhibitory effects; PGE2 infusion partially, but not completely, reversed the inhibition of increase in uterine weight, although it did not alter the inhibition of endometrial vascular permeability. For in vitro experiments, endometrial stromal cells were obtained from uteri on the day of sensitivity and cultured for up to 3 days in the presence of enalaprilat and angiotensin II. Enalaprilat inhibited in a dose-dependent manner the increases in stromal cell alkaline phosphatase activity and media PGE concentration that occurred in the control cultures; these effects were fully reversed by concurrent treatment with angiotensin II. The inhibition of stromal alkaline phosphatase activity was also reversed by PGE2; conversely, the ability of angiotensin II to reverse the effect of enalaprilat was lost in the presence of indomethacin. These studies provide evidence of a requirement for angiotensin II during the decidual cell reaction in rats and suggest that it acts, at least in part, through a PG-dependent mechanism.

The inflammatory effects of enalaprilat and cilazaprilat were tested in an experimental model of ovalbumin-sensitised guinea-pigs. Enalaprilat, but not cilazaprilat, enhanced the ovalbumin-induced inflammatory skin responses. The effect of enalaprilat was dose-dependent. Enalaprilat significantly increased the skin content of substance P and histamine. Cilazaprilat did not alter the level of these inflammatory mediators. Enalaprilat, applied locally, but not cilazaprilat, enhanced the inflammatory reactions caused by intradermal injections of allergen and substance P. Both angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors enhanced the inflammatory skin response evoked by bradykinin. Our study strongly indicates that enalaprilat has pro-inflammatory properties, whereas the new long-acting ACE inhibitor cilazaprilat does not. This might give a better safety profile of cilazaprilat.

Brief ischemia followed by reperfusion induces arteriolar microvascular endothelial dysfunction, while venular endothelial function is preserved in this porcine model. ACE inhibition enhances coronary blood flow at the time of reperfusion and can prevent impairment of endothelium-dependent arteriolar responses. However, ACE inhibition does not enhance ventricular segmental shortening acutely despite improved microvascular endothelial function and augmented postischemic coronary blood flow in this model of ischemia-reperfusion.

The converting enzyme not only converts angiotensin I into angiotensin II but also metabolizes bradykinin. Furthermore, the effects of ischemia on myocardial tissue damage can be modulated by converting enzyme inhibitors. It is unknown whether these effects of ACE-inhibitors are due to increased bradykinin production. In this paper we describe the effects of captopril on bradykinin production in the ischemic isolated rat heart. The reduced deleterious effects of ischemia by captopril were associated with a stimulated bradykinin production. Beneficial effects of bradykinin could be due to an improved perfusion or to an effect on cellular metabolism. Therefore, we conclude that this effect on kinins by ACE-inhibitors is of importance in modulating tissue damage during ischemia.

Autoregulation of renal blood flow is highly efficient and is mediated partly by tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF), which couples regulation of blood flow to that of sodium excretion. Atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) dilates preglomerular resistance vessels, in which autoregulation occurs, and has been reported to inhibit TGF. This study addressed potential actions of ANF on the slow, TGF-mediated, component of autoregulation. Renal blood flow was measured by an electromagnetic flow probe in Sprague-Dawley rats anesthetized by halothane or isoflurane while renal perfusion pressure was manipulated by a servo-controlled clamp placed on the aorta between the renal arteries. Progressive reduction of perfusion pressure to 60 mmHg (1 mmHg = 133.3 Pa) induced resetting of autoregulation to operate at the reduced pressure and to defend lower renal blood flow. Infusion of ANF at a dose shown to reliably increase sodium excretion did not affect autoregulation or its resetting. Because resetting is angiotensin II dependent, the converting enzyme inhibitor Enalaprilat was used to provide angiotensin II blockade. As expected, autoregulation did not reset to operate at reduced perfusion pressure. Again ANF was without effect. In a third experiment, relaxation of resistance was assessed in response to repeated steps of perfusion pressure between 65 and 75 mmHg. Time constants of constriction and dilatation were recovered by fitting to a single exponential before and during ANF infusion. Time constants ranged form 0.045 to 0.055 Hz, were consistent with operation of TGF, were not different for constriction or dilatation, and were unaltered by ANF; nor did ANF affect the magnitude of constriction or dilatation.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Of the 6090 patients enrolled, 3046 were assigned to placebo and 3044 to enalapril. The life-table mortality rates in the two groups at one and six months were not significantly different (6.3 and 10.2 percent in the placebo group vs. 7.2 and 11.0 percent in the enalapril group, P = 0.26). The relative risk of death in the enalapril group was 1.10 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.93 to 1.29). Death due to progressive heart failure occurred in 104 patients (3.4 percent) in the placebo group and 132 (4.3 percent) in the enalapril group (P = 0.06). Therapy had to be changed because of worsening heart failure in 30 percent of the placebo group and 27 percent of the enalapril group (P less than 0.006). Early hypotension (systolic pressure less than 90 mm Hg or diastolic pressure less than 50 mm Hg) occurred in 12 percent of the enalapril group and 3 percent of the placebo group (P less than 0.001).

There is increasing evidence that inhibition of tissue angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) is important for the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic effects of ACE inhibitors. Radioligand inhibitor binding methods using 125I-351A and either tissue homogenates or in vitro autoradiography have allowed in vitro and ex vivo quantitation of tissue ACE inhibition by a variety of ACE inhibitors. The rank order of potency against plasma as well as lung, kidney, and cardiac homogenates was quinaprilat = benazeprilat greater than perindoprilat greater than lisinopril greater than enalaprilat greater than fosinoprilat. The highest concentration of ACE in the heart was found in the cardiac valves followed by the right and left atria, then the right and left ventricles. Ex vivo studies showed that after oral administration of quinapril, ACE was inhibited dose-dependently in the lung, kidney, aorta and heart for more than 24h. Tissue bioavailability of the inhibitor is also an important determinant of tissue ACE inhibition. Perindopril crossed the blood-brain barrier and inhibited brain ACE at high doses, but after equivalent doses of quinapril no brain ACE inhibition could be demonstrated. These results suggest that it may be possible to design ACE inhibitors to have specific effects on ACE in different tissues.

The rabbit jugular vein (rbJV) was used as a bioassay system to validate some early and new hypothetical interactions between the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) and the B2 receptor, which may be influenced by ACE inhibitors (ACE-I). These involve the potentiation of the contractile effect of bradykinin (BK) and BK analogues, which are inactivated by ACE (e.g., [Hyp3, Tyr(Me8)]-BK (R556)), the prevention of BK-induced B2 receptor desensitisation, and the restoration of receptor sensitivity in tissues desensitised with B2 receptor agonists. Enzymatic degradation studies performed in vitro and in vivo revealed that BK and R556 are readily degraded by rabbit ACE whereas [Phe8psi(CH2-NH)Arg9]-BK (R379) is totally resistant. BK, R556, and R379 contracted endothelium-denuded veins with similar potencies (pEC50 range 8.10-8.50). Tissues pretreated with ACE-I showed an increase in pEC50 values for BK and R556 but not for R379. ACE-I (captopril, enalaprilat) were unable to prevent B2 receptor desensitisation induced by BK (1 microM). ACE-I partially restored B2 receptor-mediated contraction in tissues initially exposed to BK but not to R379. These effects were antagonised by HOE 140 (0.1 microM) but were unaffected by AcLys[Dbeta-Nal7, Ile8]-desArg9BK (R715) (1 microM) or by Losartan (1 microM). In conclusion, the potentiation of BK and its analogues relates exclusively on prevention of their metabolism, B2 receptor desensitisation is not affected by ACE-I, and restoration of tissue responsiveness to BK by ACE-I may be attributed to changes in BK concentrations in the vicinity of the B2 receptor.

A sensitive, specific and rapid high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method was described and validated for the quantification of ambroxol in human plasma using enalaprilat as the internal standard (IS). Chromatographic separation was performed on a Lichrospher CN column with a mobile phase of methanol and water (containing 0.1% formic acid) (70:30, v/v). The total run time was 5.0 min for each sample. The analytes was detected by mass spectrometry with electrospray ionization source in positive selected reaction monitoring mode. The precursor-fragment ion reaction for ambroxol was m/z 378.9 --> 263.8, and for IS was m/z 349.0 --> 205.9. The linearity was established over the concentration range of 1.56-400.00 ng/mL. The inter-day and the intra-day precisions were all within 10%. A simple protein precipitation with methanol was adopted for sample preparation. The extraction recoveries of ambroxol and IS were higher than 90.80%. The validated method was successfully applied in pharmacokinetic study after oral administration of 90 mg ambroxol to 24 healthy volunteers.

The purpose of this in vivo microperfusion study is to examine whether the renal nerves modulate the effect of intraluminal angiotensin II on proximal tubule transport. The decrement in volume reabsorption after addition buy vasotec of 10(-4) M luminal enalaprilat is a measure of the role of luminal angiotensin II on transport. Acute denervation decreased volume reabsorption (2.97 +/- 0.14 vs. 1.30 +/- 0.21 nl. mm(-1). min(-1), P < 0.001). Although luminal 10(-4) M enalaprilat decreased volume reabsorption in controls (2.97 +/- 0.14 vs. 1.61 +/- 0.26 nl. mm(-1). min(-1), P < 0.001), it did not after acute denervation (1.30 +/- 0.21 vs. 1.55 +/- 0.19 nl. mm(-1). min(-1)). After chronic denervation, volume reabsorption was unchanged from sham controls (2.26 +/- 0.28 vs. 2.70 +/- 0.19 nl. mm(-1). min(-1)). Addition of luminal 10(-4) M enalaprilat decreased volume reabsorption in sham control (2.70 +/- 0.19 vs. 1.60 +/- 0.10 nl. mm(-1). min(-1), P < 0.05) but not with chronic denervation (2.26 +/- 0.28 vs. 2.07 +/- 0.20 nl. mm(-1). min(-1)). Addition of 10(-8) M angiotensin II to the lumen does not affect transport due to the presence of luminal angiotensin II. However, addition of 10(-8) M angiotensin II to the tubular lumen increased the volume reabsorption after both acute (1.30 +/- 0.21 vs. 2.67 +/- 0.18 nl. mm(-1). min(-1), P < 0.05) and chronic denervation (2.26 +/- 0.28 vs. 3.57 +/- 0.44 nl. mm(-1). min(-1), P < 0.01). These data indicate that renal denervation abolished the luminal enalaprilat-sensitive component of proximal tubule transport, which is consistent with the renal nerves playing a role in the modulation of the intraluminal angiotensin II mediated component of proximal tubule transport.

1. Isolated perfused rat tail artery preparations were used to investigate the effects of the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat on the actions of a series of alpha-adrenoceptor antagonists. The agonist used was phenylephrine. 2. Enalaprilat (1 mumol/L) potentiated the competitive alpha 1-adrenoceptor antagonist actions of phentolamine (10-100 nmol/L) and yohimbine (0.3-3.0 mumol/L) as well as the non-competitive antagonist action of phenoxybenzamine (50-100 pmol/L). 3. The competitive alpha 1-adrenoceptor antagonist action of prazosin (1-10 nmol/L) was not affected by enalaprilat. 4. For the competitive alpha 1-adrenoceptor antagonists, including prazosin, there appeared to be an inverse relationship between antagonist potency and the extent of potentiation by enalaprilat. 5. The results support the hypothesis and angiotensin II modulates buy vasotec vascular smooth muscle alpha 1-adrenoceptor function.

Molecular cloning of human endothelial angiotensin I-converting enzyme (kininase II; EC (ACE) has recently shown that the enzyme contains two large homologous domains (called here the N and C domains), each bearing a putative active site, identified by sequence comparisons with the active sites of other zinc metallopeptidases. However, the previous experiments with zinc or competitive ACE inhibitors suggested a single active site in ACE. To establish whether both domains of ACE are enzymatically active, a series of ACE mutants, each containing only one intact domain, were constructed by deletion or point mutations of putative critical residues of the other domain, and expressed in heterologous Chinese hamster ovary cells. Both domains are enzymatically active and cleave the C-terminal dipeptide of hippuryl-His-Leu or angiotensin I. Moreover, both domains have an absolute zinc requirement for activity, are activated by chloride and are sensitive buy vasotec to competitive ACE inhibitors, and appear to function independently. However, the two domains display different catalytic constants and different patterns of chloride activation. At high chloride concentrations, the C domain hydrolyzes the two substrates tested faster than does the N domain. His-361,365 and His-959,963 are established as essential residues in the N and C domains, respectively, most likely involved in zinc binding, and Glu-362 in the N domain and Glu-960 in the C domain are essential catalytic residues. These observations provide strong evidence that ACE possesses two independent catalytic domains and suggest that they may have different functions.

The aim of the present study was to assess the contribution of angiotensin I buy vasotec converting enzyme (ACE)and neutral endopeptidase (NEP) in the coronary degradation of bradykinin (BK) after left-ventricular hypertrophy following myocardial infarction (MI) in rats. Myocardial infarction was induced by left descendant coronary artery ligation, and the contribution of ACE and NEP in the degradation of exogenous BK after a single passage through the coronary bed was assessed at 2, 5, and 36 days post-MI. BK degradation rate (V(max)/Km) was found to be significantly lower in hearts at 36 days (3.30 +/- 0.28 min(-1)) compared with 2 days (4.39 +/- 0.32 min(-1)) for noninfarcted hearts, but this reduction was just above the statistical level of significance for post-MI hearts. In infarcted hearts, V(max)/Km was increased significantly 5 days post-MI (4.91 +/- 0.28 min(-1)) compared with the 2 and 36 day-groups (3.43 +/- 0.20 and 2.78 +/- 0.16 min(-1), respectively). The difference between noninfarcted and MI was significant only 2 days post-MI. Treatment with the vasopeptidase inhibitor, omapatrilat, showed that the relative contribution of ACE and NEP combined increased over time in infarcted hearts and became significantly higher 36 versus 2 days post-MI. Finally, the treatment with an ACE inhibitor (enalaprilat) and a NEP inhibitor (retrothiorphan) in the 36-day infarcted and noninfarcted hearts showed that the relative contribution of ACE in infarcted hearts was comparable with that of noninfarcted hearts, whereas the relative contribution of NEP was increased significantly in infarcted hearts. In conclusion, experimental MI in rats induces complex changes in the metabolism of exogenous BK. The changes resulted in an increased relative contribution of NEP 36 days after infarction.

Subjects with DD (n=12) and II (n=11) ACE genotypes received an intravenous infusion of enalaprilat or placebo. Pressor buy vasotec responses to stepwise, incremental doses of angiotensin I were measured at 1 and 10 hours after dosing. The dose required to raise mean blood pressure by 20 mm Hg (PD20) was calculated individually, and the ratio of PD20 during enalaprilat to that during placebo (dose ratio, DR) was used for assessment of the extent of ACE inhibition. The pressor response was significantly attenuated at 1 hour after enalaprilat in both groups, but significant attenuation was evident at 10 hours after dose only in the II subjects. The DRs at both 1 hour (median, 5.43 versus 2.82, P=0.0035) and 10 hours (2.06 versus 0.84, P=0.0008) after enalaprilat were significantly higher in II subjects than in DD subjects.

Assessment of intrarenal doppler signals is of particular buy vasotec importance in screening for renal artery stenosis. We studied the effect of acute ACE-inhibition (1,25 mg enalaprilate i.v.) on intrarenal resistive indices in 10 hypertensive patients with unilateral renal artery stenosis versus 10 patients with essential hypertension. Any changes limited to poststenotic vessels could possibly improve the diagnostic value of duplex sonography. After ACE-inhibition a significant fall of the intrarenal Resistive Index occurred in both patient groups. In cases of unilateral renal artery stenosis we saw a tendency to an increased side difference of the Resistive Index due to a greater fall on the poststenotic side. Therefore a clear advantage of duplex scanning after acute ACE-inhibition due to a limited effect of enalaprilate on poststenotic vessels was not found. The results suggest that the vascular resistance and not only the degree of renal artery stenosis is of significance for the characteristics of the doppler signal.

The simultaneous acute effects of converting enzyme inhibition by intravenous enalaprilat on the circulating renin-angiotensin system and on the brachial artery were studied in 12 hypertensive patients by a double-blind comparison with saline effects in 14 hypertensive patients. The brachial artery was investigated in terms of arterial section (measured by pulsed Doppler technique) and wall rigidity (assessed by pulse wave velocity). Arterial and biochemical parameters were measured in baseline before injection and at 20 to 40 minutes (t1) and 80 buy vasotec to 100 minutes (t2) after saline and drug injections. Compared with the saline vehicle, enalaprilat significantly decreased angiotensin enzyme converting activity (p less than 0.001), increased plasma renin activity (p less than 0.01) and decreased plasma aldosterone concentrations (p less than 0.01). The drug reduced blood pressure (p less than 0.01) and increased the brachial artery section (p less than 0.01), but did not change pulse wave velocity. In the enalaprilat group, significant postinjection relations were observed between: (1) enalaprilat concentration and plasma angiotensin converting enzyme activity (r = -0.72, p less than 0.001); (2) plasma renin activity and mean blood pressure (r = -0.46, p less than 0.02); (3) plasma enalaprilat concentration and pulse wave velocity (r = -0.50, p less than 0.01) and (4) pulse wave velocity and brachial artery section (r = 0.42, p less than 0.05). Thus, the brachial artery effects of enalaprilat were not directly related to the blockade of the renin-angiotensin system in plasma.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The intracardiac conversion rate of angiotensin (Ang) I to Ang II and the expression of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) mRNA are amplified in rat hearts with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). To examine whether the accelerated intracardiac Ang II generation in LVH is related to an induction of buy vasotec cardiac ACE, we studied localization and function of cardiac ACE in hypertrophied rat hearts using specific ACE inhibitors.

Evidence for effects of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) on isolated human glomeruli was provided using specific binding of tritium-labeled ramiprilat, a potent inhibitor of ACE. [3H]ramiprilat bound to isolated glomeruli, buy vasotec depending on time and temperature, displaying a KD of 3.8 nmol/L and a Bmax of 853 fmol/mg protein. Specific binding represented more than 90% of total binding. Dissociation occurred rapidly after dilution of the sample with incubation buffer or after addition of an excess of unlabeled inhibitor. Binding of [3H]ramiprilat was also inhibited by increasing concentrations of enalaprilat, another ACE inhibitor. ACE is a zinc-containing enzyme. Addition of EGTA to the assay, which chelates zinc ions, completely prevented binding. This was reversed by divalent Zn2+ and Ca2+ ions, but not by magnesium. Binding of [3H]ramiprilat to isolated glomeruli was maximal at pH 8, which also is optimal for ACE activity. The binding of [3H]ramiprilat to isolated human glomeruli is specific, and resembles the characteristics which have been found earlier for enzyme activity of ACE. Thus, binding of [3H]ramiprilat to isolated glomeruli can be assumed to be directed to ACE.

The following study was designed to examine the effect of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors captopril and enalapril on certain biological and physiological activities of isolated preparations of glomeruli from normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive SHR rats. The results suggest that the contractile response of glomeruli from SHR to exogenous angiotensin II (Ang II) is significantly enhanced by captopril whereas it has a different effect on those from normotensive (WKY) rats. These effects are unrelated to changes in glomerular Ang II binding or the level of plasma renin activity (PRA), but they do depend partially on the sodium status of the animal. Whereas captopril induced a modest increase in the basal rate of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) synthesis by glomeruli buy vasotec from normotensive (WKY) but not by those from SHR, the reverse occurred in the presence of Ang II. Prostaglandin E2 synthesis was increased in both strains of rats in the presence of excess arachidonic acid. Further increases occurred with the addition of captopril, these increases being significantly greater by glomeruli from WKY rats than by those from SHR, while enalaprilat had no effect on PGE2 production. The glomerular synthesis of PGE2 was not influenced in either strain of rats by in vitro administration of captopril.

Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) has been shown to promote a fluid shift from the intravascular toward the interstitial compartment and to interact with the renin-angiotensin system at the renal as well as the extrarenal level. In the present studies, the interaction between the renin-angiotensin system and the effects of ANP infusion (100 x min-1 for 45 min) on arterial pressure and hematocrit were assessed in bilaterally nephrectomized, anesthetized rats. In a first series of experiments, suppression of angiotensin II generation was achieved by chronic (10 days) treatment by the angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) captopril in rats maintained on a low-sodium diet. ACEI pretreatment prevented the rise in hematocrit associated with ANP infusion (+2.1 +/- 0.1 vs. +5.8 +/- 0.2%, P < 0.05), without influencing the effect of ANP on arterial pressure. In ACEI-pretreated rats, acute administration of angiotensin II at a subpressor dose (2.5 x min-1) restored the ANP-induced increase in hematocrit. In a second series of experiments, acute blockade of the renin-angiotensin system was obtained by the ACEI enalaprilat or the nonpeptide angiotensin II receptor antagonist losartan (both 1 mg/kg i.v. bolus). In the presence of either enalaprilat or losartan, the ANP-induced increase in hematocrit was similarly prevented. These results indicate that the effect of ANP on vascular permeability is modulated by endogenous angiotensin II, possibly due to distinct influences of the Nolvadex Online Paypal two peptides at the level of pre- and postcapillary resistances.

The effect of enalaprilat on hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) production by cultured murine mesangial cells exposed to 5.5 (basal condition), 30 and 50 mM glucose concentrations was examined over 8 h. A fluorimetric method quantifying, in arbitrary units, the intracellular dichlorofluorescein (DCFH) oxidation to the highly fluorescent compound 2'7'dichlorofluorescein (DCF) from the non-fluorescent Zovirax Drug Interactions probe dichlorofluorescein-diacetate (DCFH-DA) was employed (a method not previously reported for cultured mesangial cells). Experiments were repeated three times in quadruplicate wells.

1. The hypotensive effects of glyceryl trinitrate (GTN, 0.5 mg kg-1) but not of 3-morpholino-sydnonimine (SIN-1, 0.125 mg kg-1) in anaesthetized rats were attenuated following a seven day (using a q.i.d. dosing schedule) oral treatment with isosorbide-5-mononitrate (IS-5-MN; 5 mg kg-1) indicative of the induction of tolerance to GTN but not to SIN-1. The hypotensive effects of GTN did not decline when the sulphydryl (SH) containing angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-1), captopril (CPT, 5 mg kg-1) or the structurally unrelated SH-containing, N-acetylcysteine (NAC, 10 mg kg-1) but not the non-SH-containing ACE-I, enalaprilat (ENA, 5 mg kg-1) were given together with IS-5-MN for the seven days treatment. 2. The attenuated hypotensive effects of GTN (0.5 mg kg-1) in rats treated with IS-5-MN were also restored when CPT (1 mg kg-1) or NAC (2.5 mg kg-1) but not ENA (1 mg kg-1) was administered intraperitoneally (i.p.) 30 min before GTN. Furthermore, in control rats, CPT or NAC but not ENA given i.p. 30 min before GTN, potentiated its haemodynamic effects. These effects were blocked by methylene blue (10 mg kg-1). At the same doses, CPT or NAC did not affect the hypotensive effects of SIN-1. 3. The reduced ability of cultured tolerant smooth muscle cells (SMC, 24 x 103 cells) or endothelial cells(EC, 40 x 103 cells) to potentiate the anti-platelet effects of GTN (44 microM) was restored by CPT or NAC but not by ENA or glutathione (all at 0.5 mM). Potentiation of the anti-platelet effects of tolerant SMC or EC by CPT or NAC was abolished by co-incubation with oxyhaemoglobin (Oxy-Hb, 10 microM)indicative of nitric oxide (NO) formation.4. When GTN (150-2400 microM) was incubated with CPT, NAC or glutathione but not ENA (all at 0.1 mM) for 30 min in Krebs buffer at 37 degrees C a concentration-dependent increase in nitrite (NO2-)formation was observed. 5. The antiplatelet effects of GTN (5.5-352 microM) were potentiated by co-incubation with CPT or NAC but not with ENA or glutathione (all at 0.5 mM). The concentration of GTN required to inhibit platelet aggregation by 50% (IC50) was 110 +/- 2 microM for GTN alone, 14 +/- 2 microM for GTN in the presence of NAC and 30 +/- 2 microM for GTN in the presence of CPT. The potentiation of the effects of GTN by CPT or NAC was inhibited by co-incubation with Oxy-Hb (10 microM). By themselves, CPT or NAC did not inhibit platelet aggregation.6. The ability of CPT to restore (a) the haemodynamic effects of GTN in tolerant rats and (b) the reduced capacity of tolerant SMC or EC to potentiate the anti-platelet effects of GTN is not related to its ACE inhibitory activity.7. CPT also potentiated the hypotensive effects of GTN in non-tolerant rats, and in vitro CPT released NO from GTN in the absence of a GTN to NO converting cell, so that it is unlikely that reversal of tolerance by CPT is due to the replenishment of intracellular thiols. Rather it can be explained by the ability of CPT to release NO from GTN in the extracellular space. This extracellular formation of NO from GTN by CPT would then compensate for the impaired enzymic biotransformation of GTN to Arcoxia Tablet Adalah NO that develops during tolerance as was originally proposed for NAC.

To assess the vascular involvement of renin-angiotensin system inhibition in human hypertension, acute effects of intravenous enalaprilat on brachial artery diameter, blood flow, and blood velocity were investigated in hypertensive patients by pulsed Doppler technique and compared with effects of saline vehicle. Compared with saline vehicle, enalaprilat reduced blood pressure (P less than 0.001) and increased brachial arterial diameter (P less than 0.01) and brachial blood flow (P less than 0.01). Enalaprilat effect on arterial pulse pressure was dependent on preinjection pulse pressure (r = -0.76; P less than 0.001), but its effect on mean blood pressure was not dependent on preinjection mean blood pressure. On the other hand, enalaprilat effect on arterial Buspar Dosage Information blood flow was negatively correlated with preinjection blood pressure (r = -0.64; P less than 0.02). The findings point to different responses of large and small arteries to intravenous enalaprilat.

Oatp1, the organic anion transport polypeptide, is an integral membrane protein cloned from rat liver that mediates the uptake of various organic anions such as bromosulfophthalein (BSP) and taurocholate (TCA). Recent studies by others revealed that the thrombin inhibitor, CRC 220, a modified dipeptide, was transported by oatp1. The present study was designed to examine whether another modified peptide, enalapril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, was also a substrate. Transport was studied with enalapril (1 to 800 micromol/L, with [3H]enalapril) in a HeLa cell line stably transfected with oatp1-cDNA under the regulation of a Zn2+-inducible promoter. Noninduced transfected cells (without zinc) that did not express oatp1 failed to take up enalapril. In contrast, cells expressing oatp1 transported enalapril, estrone sulfate (E1S), taurolithocholic acid sulfate (TLCAS), and the glutathione conjugate of BSP (BSPGSH). Uptake of enalapril by oatp1 at 37 degreesC was substantially higher than that at 4 degreesC. The rate at 37 degreesC (uptake rates for induced - noninduced, transfected cells) was linear over 5 minutes and was concentration-dependent, characterized by a Km of 214 +/- 67 micromol/L and a Vmax of 0.51 +/- 0.15 nmol/min/mg protein. Enalapril uptake was inhibited competitively by BSP (at 1, 5, 10, and 50 micromol/L) and TCA (at 5, 25, and 100 micromol/L) with inhibition constants (Ki) of 2 and 32 micromol/L, respectively. The metabolite enalaprilat was, however, not transported by oatp1. That oatp1 is not a general transporter of anionic compounds was further shown by the lack of transport of harmol sulfate, benzoate, and hippurate. These observations attest to the role of oatp1 as a specific transporter for at least two Diovan 360 Mg classes of pharmacologically important peptides.

The influence of a renal injury on the disposition of benazeprilat, the active moiety of benazepril, and of enalaprilat, the active moiety of enalapril, two angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors (ACEI), having different routes of elimination in dog was investigated during a mild renal insufficiency obtained by a nephrectomy-electrocoagulation method reducing glomerular filtration rate by approximately 50%. Plasma concentrations of the active moieties were analyzed with a physiologically based model taking into account the binding to ACE (high affinity, low capacity). An influence of renal insufficiency on enalapril disposition was shown with an increase in its plasma concentration, which was correlated to the reduction of the glomerular filtration rate. No such effect was evidenced for benazepril. With the physiologically based model analysis, it was shown that renal impairment led to an increase of the apparent benazeprilat clearance (260%), whereas that of enalaprilat was reduced to 40 to 55%. Renal insufficiency had no significant effect either on the apparent volume of distribution of each drug or on the binding parameters [i.e., maximal binding capacity (B(max)) and affinity (K(d))]. Enalaprilat and benazeprilat inhibitory action on ACE also was evaluated ex vivo. Similar patterns of inhibition were observed for both drugs. Renal injury had no significant influence on the overall effect of benazeprilat, whereas the inhibition effect of enalaprilat Symmetrel Syrup was significantly increased. It was concluded that renal insufficiency may have effects on the ACEI disposition but that the measurable active moiety plasma concentration is not the most appropriate endpoint to describe and interpret the consequence of a renal injury on ACEI.

The hemodynamic effects of imidapril, a novel nonsulfhydryl angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, were examined in anesthetized dogs by the intravenous injection of its active metabolite 6366A ((4S)-3-((2S)-2-[N-((1S)-1-carboxy-3- phenylpropyl)amino]propionyl)-1 Lexapro Suggested Dosage -methyl-2-oxoimidazolidine-4-carboxylic acid, CAS 89371-44-8) and were compared to those of enalaprilat. 6366A (1-100 micrograms/kg) reduced the blood pressure and total peripheral resistance in a dose-dependent manner, while causing no marked changes in heart rate, LV dp/dtmax, and pulmonary arterial pressure. The cardiac output and stroke volume were slightly increased. Blood flow in the common carotid artery, the vertebral artery, and the femoral artery was reduced or tended to decrease, while the superior mesenteric arterial blood flow was increased. These effects were similar to those of enalaprilat. 6366A did not inhibit the pressor response of angiotensin II, but markedly inhibited that of angiotensin I, and the effects of 6366A on regional blood flow were opposite to those of angiotensin II. Thus, 6366A appears to produce its hemodynamic effects by angiotensin converting enzyme inhibition, as does enalaprilat. 6366A also tended to decrease myocardial oxygen consumption. These results suggested that the hemodynamic effects of imidapril on the heart and on regional blood flow are similar to those of enalapril.

Between gestational days 122 and 126 (term 167 days) five rhesus macaques underwent surgery for implantation of maternal and fetal vascular catheters. At least 4 days after surgery maternal and fetal blood pressures and heart rates were recorded for 1 hour. This was followed by a 5-minute maternal venous infusion of saline solution vehicle and recording for an additional hour. Enalaprilat was then infused over 5 minutes through the maternal Karela Capsule femoral artery at doses of 0.05, 0.1, or 0.2 mg/kg. Maternal and fetal arterial blood samples were collected for determination of blood gas status and plasma enalaprilat concentrations.
