Renal Effects[edit]

I've got it right here in my textbook (Medical Physiology, Boron and Boulpaep 2005) that the net renal effect of ATII is to DECREASE glomerular filtration rate, not increase it as the article currently states. --AaronM (talk) 16:48, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

ATII constricts the efferent arteriole *increasing* the GFR. The action of an ACE inhibitor will decrease GFR (but will maintain perfusion of the vasa recta and other tissues) Falconerd (talk) 05:29, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

More correctly, low(er) levels of ATII preferentially constrict the efferent arteriole, increasing the GFR. At high enough levels of ATII, total resistance will be so high that total GFR will actually decrease.130.132.173.48 (talk) 04:33, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

"Broken" reference[edit]
