  In the classical renin angiotensin system (RAS), angiotensin II Ang IIplays many important roles in cardiovascular disease and in kidney, brain, and other organs via the Ang II type 1 receptor (AT1). The RAS consists of many angiotensin peptides, including Ang (), Ang (), Ang (), and Ang IV. Ang (), produced by angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), has received attention ()-and-other-angiotensin-peptides. RAS and COVID infection. The angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE-2), which belongs to the renin angiotensin system (RAS), has been identified as the main entrance for the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) to cause COVID infection in the human body (Fang et al. ).The RAS regulates the hemodynamics of the body, it has a very important role in the regulation

INTRODUCTION. Emerging experimental, clinical, and epidemiological evidence supports the notion that the brain renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is potentially involved in the pathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and dementia [].Interestingly, treatment with RAS blockers of hypertensive patients is associated with slowing of cognitive impairment and AD progression [].

In addition, the expression level and/or activity are affected by other renin-angiotensin system components (e.g. ACE and AT1 receptors).

Local inhibition or global deletion of brain ACE2 induces a reduction in baroreflex sensitivity. Moreover, ACE2-null mice have been shown to exhibit either blood pressure (BP) or cardiac dysfunction :// The discovery of renin-like activity as well as angiotensino­ gen and angiotensin in the brain has led, admittedly by inductive inference, to the hypothesis of the existence of a complete endogenous renin-angiotensin system in the brain.1 For several years there was ardent discussion whether such a renin angiotensin system existed in the brain  › Biomedical Sciences › Neuroscience.

Brain RAS (renin-angiotensin system) hyperactivity has been implicated in the brain angiotensin system book and maintenance of hypertension in several types of experimental and genetic hypertension animal models.

We have identified in the brain RAS that APA (aminopeptidase A) and APN (aminopeptidase N), two membrane-bound zinc metalloproteases, are involved in The book also explains how angiotensin acts directly to regulate thirst and sodium appetite, and via antidiuretic hormone to control water reabsorption in the kidney.

This book is comprised of eight chapters and begins with a review of the neuronal actions of angiotensin, primarily those in the brain, as well as the location and function of Angiotensinogen, the precursor molecule for angiotensins I, II and III, and the enzymes renin, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), and aminopeptidases A and N may all be synthesised within the brain.
