A recent report (Ferder et al Am J Physiol 265: 15C, 1993) found that
administration of ACE inhibitors to mice resulted in improved survival,
lower incidence of renal and cardiac sclerosis, and increased numbers
of cardiac and hepatic mitochondria.   Anyone on the net know of links
between the renin/angiotensin system, free radical release and
mitochondrial function?
