Abstract Several peptides of the RAS other than angiotensin (1-8) have been identified. They are generally referred as 'angiotensin fragments': Ang (2-8), Ang (3-8) and Ang (1-7) and have been detected in human tissues. There is evidence that they may play a functional role in humans by acting in concert with angiotensin (1-8) and aldosterone. Available knowledge on the pathways leading to synthesis and degradation of angiotensin fragments, as well as on their interactions with receptors and on their possible role in cardiovascular homeostasis and disease are reviewed.
