Losartan is an antagonist of angiotensin II receptor with antihypertensive activity due to the reduced pressor effect of angiotensin II. Losartan significantly reduces Ang II-mediated cell proliferation in endometrial cancer cells. Losartan can improve disease manifestations in the lungs, an event that cannot plausibly relate to improved hemodynamics. Losartan (10 mg/kg, intraarterial injection) increases blood angiotensin levels four- to sixfold. Losartan (10 mg/kg, i.p.) increases plasma renin levels 100-fold; plasma angiotensinogen levels decreases to 24% of control; and plasma aldosterone levels are unchanged.

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.

Angiotensin II human is converted by Angiotensin I through removal of two C-terminal residues by the enzyme angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE). Angiotensin II is mediated by AT1 and AT2 receptors, which are seven transmembrane glycoproteins with 30% sequence similarity.
