Figure 4: Opposing cardiovascular effects of the two major peptides of the renin–angiotensin system, angiotensin II and angiotensin 1–7. The intersection between these two arms of the system is the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, since this enzyme can cleave the vasoconstrictor/proliferative peptide angiotensin II to form the vasodilator/antiproliferative fragment angiotensin 1–7
