Abstract

As a concept traditionally applied to integrative organ physiology, homeostasis likewise applies to self-regulated growth and structure of loose, dense and specialized connective tissues. De novo generation and co-induction of signals, either stimulatory or inhibitory to the formation of these tissues, provide for a reciprocal regulation of their composition; angiotensin (Ang) II is a growth stimulator. Components involved in AngII generation and its biological activity, including angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and AngII receptors, are expressed by mesenchymal cells responsible for connective tissue turnover. ACE inhibition or AT1 receptor antagonism attenuate the formation of these connective tissues. The concept of circulatory homeostasis, and the endocrine properties of plasma AngII involved in maintaining same, need each be broadened to encompass auto- and paracrine effects of AngII produced within connective tissues, where it contributes to their homeostatic regulation of structure and composition.
