Angiotensin: From the Kidney to Coronavirus, a new volume in the Molecular Mediators in Health and Disease series, presents the communication role of the hormone in both health and disease states. Beyond the most common conditions, the book also explores the role of Angiotensin in infectious diseases, like COVID-19. Sections provide background to its discovery and role in homeostasis, focus on molecular biology aspects, including genetics and measurements of its associated proteins, describe the specific actions of angiotensin in normal physiology with different organ systems, survey different classes of drugs that act on the Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, cover non-angiotensin II peptides, and more.

The final part of the book is dedicated to angiotensin's role in disease states, making this the ideal reference for researchers in life sciences interested in understanding the physiological role of Angiotensin in a complete fashion. Research physicians will also benefit from the book's complete coverage of organ systems and diseases where Angiotensin plays a key role.
