Several recent studies have suggested that angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors ameliorate chronic cyclosporin A (CyA) tubulo-interstitial disease by mechanisms independent of their antihypertensive effects. The aim of the present study was to determine whether ACE inhibition exerts a direct beneficial effect on the tubulo-interstitium in an in vitro model of chronic CyA nephropathy.

vasotec drug classification

CyA promoted CF collagen synthesis, PTC cytotoxicity (suppressed viability, growth and sodium transport), and tubulo-interstitial fibrogenic cytokine release (CF secretion of insulin-like growth factor I and PTC secretion of TGFbeta1 and platelet-derived growth factor). Enalaprilat completely reversed the stimulatory effects of CyA on CF collagen synthesis (CyA + enalaprilat 6.40 +/- 0.50% vs. CyA alone 8.33 +/- 0.56% vs. control 6.57 +/- 0.62% vs. enalaprilat alone 5.55 +/- 0.93%, p < 0.05) and PTC secretion of TGFbeta1 (0.71 +/- 0.11, 1.13 +/- 0.09, 0.89 +/- 0.07, and 0.67 +/- 0.09 ng/mg protein/day, respectively, p < 0.05). However, the other manifestations of CyA toxicity were not significantly reversed by concomitant enalaprilat administration.

The hypotensive and hormonal responses of an AT1-subtype angiotensin II receptor antagonist, SR 47436, were investigated and compared with those of DuP 753 (losartan), the leading AT1-receptor antagonist, and captopril and enalapril, two major angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, in conscious, sodium-replete and sodium-depleted non-human primates.

vasotec user reviews

A dual pathway for Ang II generation exists in human resistance arteries, mediated by ACE and a chymostatin-sensitive enzyme, probably chymase. We confirm that a marked species difference exists in the mechanism of Ang II generation between the human and the rabbit. More efficacious suppression of the renin-angiotensin system may require development of novel enzyme inhibitors or combinations of currently available drugs.

The purpose of this study was to determine if the changes in renal function acutely produced by an inhibitor of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) in the sodium-depleted conscious marmoset can be explained primarily by blockade of the renin-angiotensin system. Intravenous injection of a dose of the ACEI, enalaprilate (2 mg/kg), that produced a maximal lowering of blood pressure (BP), also decreased renal vascular resistance and increased renal blood flow. Glomerular filtration rate was unchanged by enalaprilat, leading to a fall in the filtration fraction. In comparison, a dose of the renin inhibitory monoclonal antibody, R-3-36-16 (0.1 mg/kg), that also produced a maximal fall in BP, produced similar changes in renal hemodynamics to those observed after administration of the ACEI. Combined administration of 2 mg/kg enalaprilat and 0.1 mg/kg R-3-36-16 produced changes in BP and renal hemodynamics similar to those produced by the same doses of either agent administered alone. Enalaprilat (2 mg/kg) significantly increased urine volume (UV) and urinary sodium excretion (UNaV). In contrast, these parameters were not significantly altered by 0.1 mg/kg R-3-36-16. However, when given at a 10-fold higher dose, the monoclonal antibody produced an increase in UNaV and UV identical to that produced by the ACEI alone. Enalaprilat did not increase UV and UNaV excretion to a greater extent than the high dose of the renin inhibitory antibody. These results demonstrate that acute administration of an ACEI affects BP and renal function in the sodium-depleted conscious primate primarily by inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system.

In this study, the effect of bradykinin on coronary flow in the isolated rat heart was significantly potentiated when cysteine or the sulfhydryl-containing converting enzyme inhibitors captopril and zofenoprilat were administered simultaneously. In contrast, the effect of concomitant administration of enalaprilat only slightly increased the effect of bradykinin on coronary flow. In nitrate-tolerant hearts of rats pretreated with isosorbide dinitrate (15 mg daily), the increase in coronary flow by nitroglycerin and bradykinin was significantly less when compared to control hearts. The effect of captopril was not affected by pretreatment. The involvement of endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF) in the effect of captopril was apparent from experiments with L-arginine, the precursor of EDRF, and L-NMMA, the "false" precursor of EDRF. L-Arginine increased the effect of captopril, whereas L-NMMA showed a competitive antagonism for the effect of captopril on coronary flow in the isolated rat heart. Clinically, the effect of captopril was studied in 10 patients with stable, exercise-induced angina pectoris that had been treated for 3 weeks with slow-release isosorbide dinitrate (20 mg four times daily). At day 7, a baseline exercise test was obtained. Subsequently, patients with chest pain and at least 1-mm ST-segment depression on the ECG during exercise were included. They received on day 14 and 21 either captopril (25 mg) or placebo 1 h before exercise testing in a randomized, double-blind, crossover design. Captopril significantly improved the combined score of maximal ST-segment depression, maximal workload, and time to angina when compared to placebo. No differences in the pressure-rate index at rest and during exercise were seen. These results indicate that the sulfhydryl group of certain angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors can potentiate their effect on the endogenous nitrovasodilator EDRF. In the clinical situation, this may lead to an improved exercise performance in patients with stable angina pectoris during chronic nitrate treatment, independent of its systemic vascular effects.

Eighty SD rats were used to prepare burn serum. Hearts of another 24 SD rats were isolated to reproduce Langendorff perfusion model. The rat hearts were divided into different groups with different perfusion fluids as K-H buffer group, K-H buffer containing 20% burn serum group (burn serum group), K-H buffer containing 20% burn serum and 2 microg/mL enalaprilat group (enalaprilat group), and K-H buffer containing 20% burn serum and 1 nmol/mL Ang (1-7) group [Ang(1-7) group]. The rat hearts were perfused for 30 mins with each of above-mentioned fluids in different groups. Then left ventricular systolic pressure (LVSP), left ventricular end diastolic pressure (LVEDP), +/- dp/dt max, coronary flow(CF), level of creatine kinase (CK) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in respective coronary effluent were determined.

The effects of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors captopril, enalaprilat and enalapril, and the bioactive peptides angiotensin II (Ang II), [Sar1,Ile8]angiotensin II ([Sar1,Ile8]Ang II), bradykinin and D-Arg[Hyp3,D-Phe7]bradykinin) on mitogen-induced proliferation of T-lymphocytes were evaluated in C57 mouse spleen cells. Captopril (CP) dose-dependently enhanced concanavalin A (Con A)-induced proliferation of T-lymphocytes, with the effective stimulatory concentration range between 0.02-10 mM. The mitogen-induced proliferative response was inhibited at high concentrations (> 10 mM) of CP which affected the number of viable cells. Enalapril dose-dependently inhibited Con A-induced T-lymphocyte proliferation at 0.44-20 mM. This was comparable to the ACE inhibitory peptide, which had a similar range. Enalaprilat, the active parent diacid of enalapril, also showed a weaker inhibitory effect on the Con A-induced proliferative response (4-20 mM). The bioactive peptides had little effect, except at a relatively high concentration. Angiotensin II (Ang II) at 0.05 mM inhibited the Con A-induced proliferative response while [Sar1,Ile8]Ang II, a specific antagonist of Ang II, had no effect. Both bradykinin and its specific antagonist, D-Arg[Hyp3,D-Phe7]bradykinin, had no effect on Con A-induced T-lymphocyte proliferation. The ACE inhibitors and bioactive peptides had little or no cytotoxic effects, except when present at or more than 5 mM. In conclusion, the effects of ACE inhibitors such as captopril and enalapril on Con A-induced T-lymphocyte proliferation were confirmed after a pilot study recently reported. These effects, especially with the stimulatory effect of CP, are unrelated to their ability to inhibit angiotensin-converting enzyme and perturbation of the bioactive peptides such as angiotensin II and bradykinin.

The early effects of the diabetic milieu on retinal tissue and their relation to the Renin-Angiotensin system (RAS) activation are poorly known. Here we investigated RAS signaling in retinas explanted from adult rats exposed for 48 h to high glucose (HG), with or without the Angiotensin Converting Enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat, which blocks RAS. HG was observed to i) initiate a phosphotyrosine-dependent signaling cascade; ii) up-regulate Angiotensin(1) Receptor (AT(1)R); iii) activate src tyrosine kinase and increase phosphorylation of Pyk2, PLCgamma1 and ERK1/2; and iv) activate Akt and the transcription factor CREB. In the presence of enalaprilat, tyrosine phosphorylation signal and AT(1)R upregulation decreased and activation of PLCgamma1 and CREB reverted, showing their relation to RAS signaling. In line with Akt activation, no apoptosis or synapse degeneration was found. Müller glia was activated, but in a RAS-independent manner. Our results suggest that, in early phases of HG exposure, a pro-survival cell program may be induced in the retina.

The chemistry, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, clinical efficacy, adverse effects, and dosage of enalapril maleate, a nonsulfhydryl angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, are reviewed. Enalapril is rapidly converted by ester hydrolysis to enalaprilat, a potent ACE inhibitor; enalapril itself is only a weak ACE inhibitor. Enalapril lowers peripheral vascular resistance without causing an increase in heart rate. In patients with congestive heart failure, enalapril has beneficial hemodynamic effects based on reduction of both cardiac preload and afterload. Approximately 60% of a dose of enalapril is absorbed after oral administration. Excretion of enalaprilat is primarily renal. Accumulation of enalaprilat occurs in patients with creatinine clearances less than 30 mL/min. Enalapril 10-40 mg per day orally has shown efficacy comparable to that of captopril in treating patients with mild, moderate, and severe hypertension, hypertension caused by renal-artery stenosis, and in congestive heart failure resistant to digitalis and diuretics. When given alone for hypertension, enalapril has efficacy comparable to that of thiazide diuretics and beta blockers. Side effects observed with enalapril have generally been minor. Captopril-associated side effects such as skin rash, loss of taste, and proteinuria have been observed in a small number of patients receiving enalapril to date; neutropenia less than 300/mm3 has been noted with captopril but not enalapril. The incidence of these side effects has been noted to be greatly decreased in patients on low doses of captopril. Enalapril appears to be similar in efficacy to captopril for treating hypertension and congestive heart failure. Whether enalapril is safer than low-dose captopril in patients at high risk for captopril-associated side effects will require further investigation.

We have studied the effects of various angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors on intraocular pressure (IOP) of rabbits with experimentally induced ocular hypertension and their mechanism of action. Acute ocular hypertension was induced by infusion of 5% glucose (15 ml/kg) through marginal ear vein, whereas chronic glaucoma was induced by injection of alpha-chymotrypsin into the posterior chamber of the eye. IOP was measured by tonometer. All ACE inhibitors were instilled topically in the eye in a sterile solution. The effect of ACE inhibitors also was studied on serum cholinesterase (true and pseudo) and the enzyme ACE in vitro. Enalaprilat, ramiprilat, and fosinopril produced a time-dependent decrease of IOP in both acute and chronic models of ocular hypertension in rabbits. The decrease in IOP was observed for >4 h, and the extent of decrease was comparable to that with both pilocarpine and betaxolol. Prodrugs enalapril and ramipril failed to produced any change in IOP. Losartan also produced a significant decrease in IOP in the chronic model of ocular hypertension in rabbits. All the three ACE inhibitors were found to inhibit ACE activity in aqueous humor. The enzyme cholinesterase was found to be inhibited by enalaprilat, ramiprilat, and fosinopril. However, atropine did not alter the IOP-lowering effect of enalaprilat in rabbits. Indomethacin pretreatment produced slight but significant inhibition of the IOP-lowering effect of enalaprilat in rabbits. Our data suggest that ACE inhibitors enalaprilat, ramiprilat, and fosinopril produce a significant ocular hypotensive effect in acute and chronic models of ocular hypertension in rabbits. Inhibition of ACE in aqueous humor, and in ocular tissues, resulting in reduced angiotensin II formation, could be one of the major mechanisms responsible for the IOP reduction by ACE inhibitors in rabbits.

The response of renin release to the administration of renin inhibitors cannot be studied with conventional enzymatic methods used to measure plasma renin. In the present experiments, a novel multirange enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for human and primate renin was used to investigate the changes in plasma immunoreactive renin after renin inhibition. A potent and long-acting statine-containing renin inhibitor, CGP 29 287, was injected in conscious marmosets after mild or severe sodium depletion. In mildly sodium-depleted marmosets, CGP 29 287 (0.1 mg/kg i.v.) reduced mean arterial blood pressure and completely inhibited plasma renin activity for up to 30 minutes. This response was associated with a transient increase in plasma immunoreactive renin concentration. After a dose of 1.0 mg/kg i.v., the reduction of mean arterial pressure and the complete inhibition of plasma renin activity persisted for up to 120 minutes. These effects were accompanied by a sustained increase in plasma immunoreactive renin concentration. In severely sodium-depleted marmosets, CGP 29 287 (1.0 mg/kg i.v.) induced a marked fall in systolic blood pressure and complete inhibition of plasma renin activity within 30 minutes of injection. Plasma immunoreactive renin levels increased to 257% of pretreatment values. The converting-enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat (2 mg/kg i.v.) induced a fall in systolic blood pressure of similar magnitude, which was accompanied by an increase in plasma renin activity. Levels of plasma immunoreactive renin increased to 210% of pretreatment values. Hydralazine (0.2 mg/kg i.v.) did not increase plasma renin activity or plasma immunoreactive renin levels despite a comparable hypotensive effect.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Studies on the effects of peptidase inhibitors on substance P-like immunoreactive material (SPLI) released by K(+)-induced depolarization from slices of the rat spinal cord showed that bacitracin was the most potent agent to protect SPLI from degradation. Captopril and thiorphan which inhibit, respectively, angiotensin I converting enzyme and endopeptidase-24.11 also protected SPLI from degradation. However other inhibitors of these two enzymes, kelatorphan for endopeptidase-24.11 and enalaprilat for angiotensin I converting enzyme were essentially inactive, indicating that both enzymes are probably not involved in the degradation of endogenous substance P. Instead, the non-additive protecting effect of bacitracin, captopril and thiorphan might be due to the blockade of some 'bacitracin-sensitive enzyme' playing a key role in the catabolism of SP within the rat spinal cord.

The cis and trans isomeric composition of a proline peptide bond can be determined by routine free-solution capillary electrophoresis measurements provided that one isomeric form is preferentially stabilized by a dissociable ionic group. This capability is illustrated using the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor (S)-1-N-[1-(ethoxycarbonyl)-3-phenylpropyl]-L-ala-L-pro, which has the trade name enalapril. Electropherograms indicate that the two isomeric forms of enalapril can be separated with baseline resolution at 15 degrees C using capillary buffers having pH values in the dissociation ranges of the enalapril carboxyl group, pK(cis) and pK(trans) of 2.6 and 3.1, and of the enalapril amine group, pK(cis) and pK(trans) of 5.9 and 5.6. Such baseline resolution indicates that the isomeric composition does not change during analysis, facilitating measurement of the isomer composition of a sample prior to its injection into the capillary. Thus the effect of pH, ionic strength, or an aprotic solvent on the isomeric composition of enalapril can be measured under uniform analytical conditions. The trans isomer composition changes from 68% in the cationic form, pH <2, to 50% in the isoelectric form, pH approximately 4.5, to 60% in the anionic form, pH >7. Addition of salt to the isoelectric form or addition of an aprotic solvent to any form prior to analysis increases the trans isomer composition. Similar analyses can be made using the alternative ACE inhibitors captopril and enalaprilat.

The present study showed that when NPE occurs, a high lung AngII concentration was associated with an imbalance between ACE mRNA to ACE2 mRNA expression level. Activated local RAS in lung tissue resulted in lung injury. Enalaprilat treatment may attenuate lung injury by interventing local RAS in lung tissue with decreased ratio of ACE mRNA to ACE2 mRNA and lung AngII concentration. The result will be significant for the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor used in the theatment of NPE.

The angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I) enalapril has been shown to lower elevated levels of circulating adhesion molecules (cAM) in critically ill patients. To delineate the mechanisms of this possibly beneficial effect of enalapril, we studied the acute effects of enalapril in a well-defined model of endotoxin-triggered, cytokine-mediated cAM up-regulation. In a randomized, controlled trial, 30 healthy male volunteers received 2 ng/kg lipopolysaccharide (LPS) after pretreatment with placebo or 20 mg/day enalapril for 5 days or with a single dose of 20 mg of enalapril 2 h before LPS infusion. LPS infusion increased TNF levels 300-fold above normal, circulating (c) E-selectin levels by 425% (CI, 359%-492%), and P-selectin, VCAM-1, ICAM-1, and von Willebrand factor levels by 47%-74%. LPS infusion also enhanced ICAM-1 and CD11b expression 2- to 3-fold on monocytes. However, no differences were seen between treatment groups (P > 0.05), despite 95% inhibition of ACE activity by enalapril. Inhibition of ACE activity by enalapril does not influence plasma indices of endothelial activation after endotoxin infusion in healthy individuals. Our results do not support the concept of a beneficial clinical effect of enalaprilat in septicemia.

Neither the infusion of angiotensin II nor the acute administration of enalaprilat significantly alters the activity of the sympathetic nervous system as reflected by plasma norepinephrine or systemic venous norepinephrine spillover in patients with chronic congestive heart failure. These data weaken the hypothesis that angiotensin II is an important regulator of sympathetic activity in congestive heart failure.

Influence of enalaprilat, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, on a functional proteinuria associated with increase in diuresis unduced by furosemide, 1-deamino-arginine vasotocin (1d-AVT) injection or water loading was investigated in experiments with Wistar rats. Intraperitoneal injection of 0.1 mg/100 g b.w. of enalaprilat resulted in reduction of glomerular filtration rate, solute-free water reabsorption and solutes excretion, particularly potassium excretion, after 1d-AVT administration and decrease in diuresis and solute-free water excretion after oral water loading. Enalaprilat injection did not influence on the level of proteinuria induced by the various types ofdiuresis and albuminuria during water diuresis and 1d-AVT-dependent saluresis. The data obtained have shown that decrease in angiotensin II production in the renal structures does not affect protein excretion rate during examined forms of proteinuria and suggest existence of a multicomponent system of the pressure stabilization in the glomerular apparatus.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are well established as long-term antihypertensives and have also been proved useful in hypertensive emergencies. Therefore, we investigated whether intraoperative i.v. enalaprilat may reduce the incidence of perioperative hypertensive reactions in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).

The angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat is formed in vivo in liver and kidney by esterolysis of the antihypertensive drug enalapril. To gain insight into the renal elimination of enalaprilat, we carried out multiple-indicator dilution experiments in the isolated perfused rat kidney. Kidneys were perfused single pass with an amino acid-supplemented Krebs-Henseleit buffer containing 20% bovine red blood cells and 4% bovine serum albumin, at a flow rate of 0.11 +/- 0.02 (SD) ml.s-1 x g-1. A bolus of 51Cr-labeled red blood cells (vascular red blood cell indicator), 125I-labeled albumin (vascular plasma indicator), L-[14C]glucose (interstitial space indicator), and [3H]-enalaprilat was injected into the renal artery, and timed samples of venous blood (up to 1 min) and urine (up to 10 min) were collected. The data were analyzed using a variable-transit-time, space-distributed model with modifications accounting for glomerular filtration and the observed 14% protein binding of enalaprilat; the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimated from L-glucose clearance was 9.0 +/- 2.9% of total plasma flow. The ratio of renal clearance of unbound enalaprilat to GFR was 1.56 +/- 0.29, indicating both glomerular filtration and net tubular secretion of enalaprilat. Unidirectional influx from plasma to tubular cells exceeded tubular secretion by a factor of 2.2 +/- 0.5. Thus only about one-half of the enalaprilat taken up by the tubular cells was excreted into urine, with the remainder refluxing into the capillary blood stream, indicating bidirectional permeation of enalaprilat across the basolateral tubular membrane.

We investigated the degradation of angiotensin I (Ang I) by guinea pig aqueous humor at physiological pH (pH 7.4) and assessed the activity of responsible enzymes using various enzyme inhibitors. The aqueous humor was incubated with Ang I in the presence or absence of an enzyme inhibitor at 37 degrees C for the appropriate time period. The resulting peptides were analyzed by a Beckman HPLC system with a Waters microBondapak C18 analytical column using a 30-min increasing linear gradient of 10 to 40% acetonitrile containing 0.05% trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) and H2O containing 0.05% TFA at a flow rate of 1 mL/min. Detection was done by absorbance at 214 nm. Angiotensin II (Ang II) was a major product (39.3+/-4.10 nmol x h(-1) mL(-1), n = 5) of Ang I hydrolysis. Traces of angiotensin 1-9, angiotensin IV, and angiotensin 1-7 were also produced. Chymostatin (0.05 mmol/L), EDTA (1 mmol/L), enalaprilat (0.1 mmol/L), and ebelacton B (0.01 mmol/L) inhibited generation of Ang II from Ang I by guinea pig aqueous humor by 89+/-4.6, 56+/-7.6, 33+/-5.1, 20+/-6.5%, respectively. Our findings indicate that guinea pig aqueous humor contains several enzymes that can form Ang II. The chymostatin-sensitive type of enzyme was the most active one found in guinea pig aqueous humor. Angiotensin I converting enzyme, carboxypeptidase A, and deamidase may also contribute to angiotensin II formation in guinea pig ocular fluid.

Early antihypertensive treatment with beta1 blockers and diuretics has proved to delay progression in diabetic nephropathy. Application of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE-I) may also be relevant. To elucidate possible differences in acute renal response to ACE-I and beta-blockers, kidney function was investigated before and after enalaprilat (10 mg) and metoprolol (10 mg) i.v. in 8 microalbuminuric insulin-dependent diabetic patients on no antihypertensive therapy (Study A). Glomerular filtration rate (clearance of 125I-iothalamate) was unchanged with both agents. ACE-I gave rise to efferent renal vasodilation: renal resistance and filtration fraction fell, renal plasma flow (RPF; 131I-hippuran) tended to rise (2p = 0.07) and blood pressure and urinary albumin excretion rate (UAE; radioimmunoassay) were reduced. In contrast, metoprolol caused a decline in RPF, an increase in renal resistance and filtration fraction, and no change in blood pressure or UAE. In 10 diabetic, nephropathic patients undergoing treatment with metoprolol and thiazide (Study B), the acute response to enalaprilat corresponded closely to that observed in Study A, including a decrease in UAE and blood pressure. Over 6 months the addition of enalapril (20 mg/d) to metoprolol and thiazide produced a more pronounced UAE-reduction, although no significant decrease in blood pressure was observed. The present findings support that ACE-I may process specific renoprotective effects. A combination therapy with beta1 blockers, ACE-I, and diuretics is suggested.

Brief ischemia followed by reperfusion induces arteriolar microvascular endothelial dysfunction, while venular endothelial function is preserved in this porcine model. ACE inhibition enhances coronary blood flow at the time of reperfusion and can prevent impairment of endothelium-dependent arteriolar responses. However, ACE inhibition does not enhance ventricular segmental shortening acutely despite improved microvascular endothelial function and augmented postischemic coronary blood flow in this model of ischemia-reperfusion.

The affinity of three substrates for the intestinal peptide carrier is explained based on their three-dimensional (3D) structural data. The kinetic transport parameters of three ACE-inhibitors, enalapril, enalaprilat, and lisinopril, have been determined in an in vivo system using rat intestine. The observed kinetic transport parameters (+/- asymptotic standard error) of enalapril are: 0.81 (+/- 0.23) mM, 0.58 (+/- 0.37) mumol/h per cm2, and 0.56 (+/- 0.04) cm/h for the half-maximal transport concentration (KT), the maximal transport flux (Jmax) and the passive permeability constant (Pm). Enalaprilat was transported by passive diffusional with a Pm of 0.51 (+/- 0.04) cm/h. For lisinopril the kinetic transport parameters were 0.38 (+/- 0.19) mM, 0.12 (+/- 0.07) mumol/h per cm2, and 0.18 (+/- 0.02) cm/h for KT, Jmax, and Pm, respectively. The affinity of the ACE-inhibitors for the intestinal peptide carrier has been evaluated based on their ability to inhibit the transport rate of cephalexin. The inhibition constants (Ki) of enalapril, enalaprilat and lisinopril were 0.15, 0.28 and 0.39 mM, respectively. 3D structural analysis of lisinopril using molecular modelling techniques reveals that intramolecular hydrogen bond formation is responsible for decreased carrier affinity.

Since angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) metabolizes bradykinin, the hypotensive effect of ACE inhibitors could be partly due to an increased bradykinin activity. We therefore investigated the influence of HOE K86-4321 [D-Arg-(Hyp2-Thi5,8-DPhe7)-bradykinin], a selective bradykinin-2 receptor antagonist, on the effects of enalaprilat (0.3 and 3.0 mg/kg) and zofenoprilat (0.1 and 1.0 mg/kg) on the heart rate, mean arterial blood pressure, cardiac output and total peripheral resistance in rats. Both enalaprilat and zofenoprilat reduced mean arterial pressure (from 110 +/- 7 to 85 +/- 6 and from 108 +/- 9 to 72 +/- 9 mmHg, respectively; P less than 0.05) and total peripheral resistance (from 515 +/- 35 to 413 +/- 29 and from 495 +/- 45 to 310 +/- 25 x 10(-3) mmHg/litre per min per kg, respectively; P less than 0.05); the heart rate and cardiac output changed little. In the presence of HOE K86-4321, which by itself did not affect the haemodynamic variables measured, the effects of the two ACE inhibitors were significantly reduced. These results suggest that bradykinin-2 receptor-mediated vasodilation, although not involved in blood pressure regulation, influences the reduction in blood pressure induced by enalaprilat and zofenoprilat in normotensive rats. Furthermore, at comparable ACE-inhibiting doses, zofenoprilat was more effective in reducing mean arterial pressure, which might be related to the presence of a sulphydryl group.

Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and neutral endopeptidase (NEP) are implicated in the metabolism of several peptides involved in blood pressure and sodium homeostasis control, such as angiotensins, atrial natriuretic factor (ANF), bradykinin and endothelin. The effects of a highly selective NEP inhibitor (NEPI), retrothiorphan, of a converting enzyme inhibitor (CEI), enalaprilat, and of the combination, CEI + NEPI, were assessed in deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt hypertensive rats, spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) and renovascular hypertensive rats. NEPI increased diuresis, natriuresis and urinary cyclic GMP (cGMP), ANF and bradykinin in the three models. NEPI decreased blood pressure in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats only, whereas CEI decreased blood pressure in SHRs and renovascular hypertensive rats only and increased plasma renin. CEI had no effect on urinary aldosterone or bradykinin in any of the three models. CEI + NEPI increased diuresis and natriuresis in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats and SHRs, and increased urinary cGMP, ANF and bradykinin and plasma renin levels. CEI and NEPI interacted significantly to decrease blood pressure and to increase urinary cGMP in SHRs only. Hence, NEPI increases diuresis, natriuresis and urinary cGMP, ANF and bradykinin in experimental hypertension, whereas CEI acts on blood pressure and increases in plasma renin in SHRs and renovascular hypertensive rats. The significant interaction between CEI and NEPI to decrease blood pressure in SHRs indicates that simultaneous blockade of the two metallopeptidases results in potentiation of the hypotensive effect and that the SHRs appear to be a good model for studying NEP and ACE coinhibition. Finally, NEP rather than ACE appears to be involved in bradykinin renal catabolism in experimental hypertension.

Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic of IV enalapril at 0.50 mg/kg, PO placebo and PO enalapril at three different doses (0.50, 1.00 and 2.00 mg/kg) were analyzed in 7 healthy horses. Serum concentrations of enalapril and enalaprilat were determined for pharmacokinetic analysis. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity, serum ureic nitrogen (SUN), creatinine and electrolytes were measured, and blood pressure was monitored for pharmacodynamic analysis. The elimination half-lives of enalapril and enalaprilat were 0.67 and 2.76 h respectively after IV enalapril. Enalapril concentrations after PO administrations were below the limit of quantification (10 ng/ml) in all horses and enalaprilat concentrations were below the limit of quantification in 4 of buy vasotec online the 7 horses. Maximum mean ACE inhibitions from baseline were 88.38, 3.24, 21.69, 26.11 and 30.19% for IV enalapril at 0.50 mg/kg, placebo and PO enalapril at 0.50, 1.00 and 2.00 mg/kg, respectively. Blood pressures, SUN, creatinine and electrolytes remained unchanged during the experiments.

Experimental design methodologies are applied to the development of a capillary zone electrophoretic buy vasotec online method for the separation of the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor enalapril and its derivative enalaprilat and the diuretics xipamide and hydrochlorothiazide. The effects of pH, buffer concentration, proportion of boric acid in the mixed boric acid-potassium dihydrogen phosphate background electrolyte, temperature, applied voltage, and percentage of organic modifier are studied. Critical factors are identified in a screening design (a 2(6-2) fractional factorial design), and afterwards, optimal conditions for the separation are reached by means of an optimization design (a 2(2) + 2 x 2 + k central composite design). The studied response is the resolution between peaks. The four studied compounds can be separated in less than 3.5 min using an electrolyte of 20mM boric acid-potassium dihydrogen phosphate (75:25, v/v) with 5% MeOH adjusted to pH 8.0 with KOH, at a potential of 30 kV. The detection wavelength and temperature are 206 nm and 35 degrees C, respectively.

The pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles of oral enalapril (20 mg), in absence and in presence of probenecid pretreatment (1 g twice daily for 5 days), were investigated in 12 healthy volunteers on normal salt intake (150 mmol/24 hr). Mean peak serum concentration of enalapril rose from 158 +/- 7 to 216 +/- 1 ng/ml (P less than .01), whereas that of its metabolite, enalaprilat, rose from 62 +/- 6 to 84 +/- 8 ng/ml (P less than .01) in the presence of probenecid pretreatment. Area under the curve of both enalapril and enalaprilat increased by 50% (P less than .001), which was accompanied by a reduction in renal excretion of both compounds. The renal clearance of enalapril decreased from 229 +/- 19 to 61 +/- 4 ml/min (P less than .001) and that of enalaprilat from 108 +/- 4 to 66 +/- 2 ml/min (P less than .001). The total drug recovery fell from 48 +/- 3 to 38 +/- 2% (P less than .01) of the administered dose with no accompanying changes in plasma elimination half-lives of the parent drug or metabolite. The pharmacodynamic response of enalapril such as fractional excretions of sodium, calcium, magnesium and urate were enhanced by probenecid pretreatment. Absolute urinary excretion of sodium increased from 51 +/- 5 to 91 +/- 8 mmol/6 hr (P less than .001) after buy vasotec online enalapril and from 55 +/- 4 to 113 +/- 13 mmol/6 hr (P less than .01) after enalapril in presence of probenecid pretreatment, despite a significant decrease in the renal excretion of enalapril and enalaprilat over the same interval.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The influence of captopril and enalaprilat on central nervous system in laboratory animals has been studied. The effects of the drugs on duration of ethanol (4 g/kg i.p.) and thiopental (70 mg/kg i.p.) induced sleep, body temperature, spontaneous locomotor activity and analgesic properties (hot plate and tail-flick test) have been investigated in mice. Captopril (5 and 20 mg/kg i.p.) and enalaprilat (5 and 20 mg/kg i.p.) were used in single administration or repeated one for 10 days. Moreover, pharmaco-EEG profile of captopril and enalaprilat in rabbits has been studied. We have shown that single administration of captopril (both doses) and single or prolonged administration of enalaprilat decreased the duration of ethanol and thiopental-induced sleep. Captopril (5 mg/kg) and enalaprilat (5 and 20 mg/kg) increased pain threshold. Both studied drugs after their single or repeated administration did not influence spontaneous locomotor activity in mice. Captopril and enalaprilat decrease buy vasotec online body temperature in mice. Examined ACEIs produce changes in EEG recording, more profoundly exhibited after administration of enalaprilat.

Endothelium-dependent relaxation to acetylcholine was augmented in aortic rings from rats treated with Per in comparison with control. The IC50 value (95% confidence limits) decreased from 3.8 (0.56-26.1) mumol.L-1 (control group) to 0.98 (0.28-3.41) mumol.L-1 (Per-treated group). The maximal relaxation was augmented from 62 +/- 9% to 78 +/- 10% (P < 0.01). However, the responses to the endothelium-independent vasodilators, SN and Nit, were similar. Serotonin- and phenylephrine-induced contractions were decreased, which were influenced by basal release of endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF). EC50 values was 6.1 (2.6-14.4) nmol.L-1 vs 8.3 (3.6-18.8) nmol.L-1 in comparison with control group and Per-treated group. The maximal contraction was decreased from 2.42 +/- 0.29 g (control group) buy vasotec online to 1.96 +/- 0.25 g (treated group) (P < 0.01). Similar results were found in incubation with Ena.

The purpose of this investigation was to study the effect of an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (enalaprilat) on the morphologic manifestations of experimentally induced necrotizing tracheobronchitis (NTB). Twenty piglets were anesthetized before saline lung lavage. High frequency flow interrupter (HFFI) ventilation was used with a strategy known to produce NTB. Animals were randomly assigned to receive IV enalaprilat 0.1 mg/kg (ENP-Hi), enalaprilat 0.01 mg/kg (ENP-Lo), or saline (C). After 8 hours of ventilation, the piglets were sacrificed. Total airway injury scores (mean +/- S.D.) were 1.2 +/- 0 buy vasotec online .7 for ENP-Hi, 0.2 +/- 0.2 for ENP-Lo, and 21.3 +/- 16 for group C. Enalaprilat minimizes NTB lesions in neonatal piglets exposed to high frequency oscillatory ventilation. Although the origin of NTB is multifactorial, airway mucosa ischemia may play an important role. Enalaprilat may compensate for the reduction of mucosal blood flow by limiting formation of angiotensin II and/or preventing degradation of bradykinin.

This article discusses the pharmacologic basis on which trandolapril exhibits a more potent and longer-lasting antihypertensive effect than its chemical prototype enalapril. Our studies have shown that 1) trandolapril and its active metabolite trandolaprilat are more lipophilic than enalapril and its active diacid enalaprilat; 2) trandolaprilat is three times more potent than enalaprilat in vitro; and 3) trandolapril is 10 times more effective and longer-acting than enalapril in lowering the blood pressure of spontaneously hypertensive rats. The long duration of action of trandolapril can be attributed to its long-lasting inhibition of the vascular tissue angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). The long action onto the vascular tissue ACE may be due to the high lipophilicity of trandolapril which may increase its tissue penetration and its elimination half-life from the tissue, and the unique nature of the vascular tissue which, unlike the other tissues, does not respond to trandolapril with the induction of de novo ACE that may counteract the ACE inhibition. These data imply that trandolapril is a potent ACE inhibitor with distinctively long action, which might be a result of its vascular tissue affinity and the lack of any ACE inducing ability of the vascular tissue. buy vasotec online

Enalaprilat exhibited better survival (91 %) versus other treatment groups (PSL: 85.7 %, PSL + ACE-I: 71.4 %, placebo: 66.6 %). The ACE-I and PSL + ACE-I groups showed significantly better histological scores versus placebo mice. ACE-I and the PSL groups significantly reduced several pro-inflammatory cytokines versus placebo mice. FITC-dextran permeability was reduced in the ACE-I and buy vasotec online PSL + ACE-I groups. Blood pressure was not affected in ACE-I treated mice compared to placebo mice.

After oral administration, ramipril, a nonsulfhydryl angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, is transformed in the liver into its active metabolite ramiprilat. Because of its pentane ring it is at least 23 times more lipophilic than enalaprilat. The in vitro affinity for ACE is 7 times higher than for enalaprilat and 47 times higher than for captopril. The ramiprilat-ACE complex is therefore very stable and dissociates 6 times more slowly than the enalaprilat ACE complex and 72 times more slowly than the captopril ACE complex. Consequently, ramipril is pharmacologically more potent and has a longer duration of action than enalapril and captopril. The blood pressure lowering effect of ACE inhibitors is attributed to the decrease in angiotensin II in serum and locally in target organs of hypertension: heart, vessel wall, kidney and brain. Inhibition of tissue renin-angiotensin system by ramipril has been described in target organs of hypertension in animal models and in clinical studies. Possibly due to its high lipophilicity, and strong affinity to the converting enzyme buy vasotec online a better tissue penetration and a more pronounced local ACE inhibition in the target organs has been observed, as compared to other ACE inhibitors. In a preliminary investigation a direct action of ramipril on the tissue RAS in hypertensive patients could also be demonstrated.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The pharmacodynamic profile of the new angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor moexipril and its active diacid, moexiprilat, was studied in vitro and in vivo. In vitro, moexiprilat exhibited a higher inhibitory potency than enalaprilat against both plasma ACE and purified ACE from rabbit lung. Upon oral administration of moexipril (10 mg/kg/day) to spontaneously hypertensive rats, plasma angiotensin II concentration decreased to undetectable levels, plasma ACE activity was inhibited by 98% and plasma angiotensin I concentration increased 8.6-fold 1 h after dosing. At 24 h, plasma angiotensin I and angiotensin II concentrations had returned to pretreatment levels, whereas plasma ACE activity was still inhibited by 56%. Four-week oral administration of moexipril (0.1-30 mg/kg/day) to spontaneously hypertensive rats lowered blood pressure and differentially inhibited ACE activity in plasma, lung, aorta, heart and kidney in a dose-dependent fashion. Equidose treatment (10 mg/kg/day) with moexipril and enalapril over 4 weeks led to comparable decreases in blood pressure, inhibition of plasma ACE and reduction of plasma angiotensinogen and to a similar attenuation of the pressor responses to angiotensin I and potentiation of the depressor responses to bradykinin. In contrast, ACE inhibition in aorta, heart and lung was significantly greater with moexipril than with enalapril, whereas in the buy vasotec online kidney both drugs inhibited ACE activity to a similar extent. In summary, moexipril is an orally active ACE inhibitor that is comparable to enalapril in potency and duration of antihypertensive activity. The results of the present study demonstrate that 1) the antihypertensive potency of a given ACE inhibitor cannot be predicted from its in vitro characteristics and 2) the degree of blood pressure reduction does not correlate with tissue ACE inhibition.

RVH was unlikely when RCA after ACE inhibition was less than 30% of peak cortical activity. Conversely, RVH was present when 131I-hippuran cortical activity steadily increased throughout the test to reach 100% at 20 minutes. In azotemic patients with RCA between 31% and 100%, RVH was differentiated from intrinsic renal disease by obtaining a baseline renogram without ACE buy vasotec online inhibition and comparing RCA in that study and RCA after ACE inhibition. If RCA increased (indicating worsening renal function) after ACE inhibition, RVH was likely; whereas, intrinsic renal disease was more likely if RCA remained unchanged or decreased (indicating improved renal function) with ACE inhibition. The test had a specificity of 95% and a sensitivity of 96% in this population. There was a direct correlation between the results of angioplasty or surgery on high blood pressure and the changes in RCA before and after intervention (n = 20).

Angiotensinogen, ACE and angiotensin type 1 receptor mRNA expression increased in islets cultured in high glucose; this was similarly prevented by the presence of either ACE inhibitor. As expected, preculture of human islets in high buy vasotec online glucose determined a marked reduction in insulin secretion which was associated with enhanced oxidative stress, as shown by increased nitrotyrosine concentrations, and enhanced expression of protein kinase C beta and NADPH oxidase. The presence of either of the ACE inhibitors counteracted several of the deleterious effects of high glucose exposure, including reduction of insulin secretion and increased oxidative stress; zofenoprilat showed significantly more marked effects.

Central hemodynamics, systemic oxygenation, and hormonal regulation of circulation (plasma renin activity, plasma endothelin, atrial natriuretic peptide, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and vasopressin concentrations, serum angiotensin-converting enzyme activity, and serum levels of aldosterone) were Propecia Generic Cost assessed at baseline before enalaprilat infusion, and repeatedly over 2 hours after the infusion. Enalaprilat infusion (median dose, 2.0 mg; infusion time, 48 minutes) caused a significant decrease in pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (p = 0.004), lasting until the end of the 2 hours' follow-up. This coincided with inhibition of serum angiotensin-converting enzyme activity (p < 0.001), an increase in plasma renin activity (p = 0.022), and decreases in plasma endothelin (p = 0.035), atrial natriuretic peptide (p = 0.005), and serum aldosterone (p = 0.001) concentrations. Cardiac output, venous admixture, and oxygen delivery and consumption remained unchanged.

Prospective study of patients with unilateral stenosis (>60% Priligy 3 Tablet diameter reduction) and hypertension in 24-h measurements despite antihypertensive drugs, who underwent revascularization (surgery/angioplasty). Examinations were performed before treatment and after 3 and 6 months after exclusion of restenosis. Studies included 24-h blood pressure, creatinine clearance, 99Tc MAG3 scintigraphy, and measurements of renal vein plasma renin activity (PRA). Intrarenal resistance indices (RI) were determined with duplex ultrasound before and 30 min after administration of intravenous enalaprilat. Improvement of hypertension was defined by a score consisting of 24-h mean arterial pressure and the number of antihypertensive drugs.

We examined possible interactions between intrarenal angiotensin II (ANG II) formation and norepinephrine (NE) release during renal sympathetic nerve stimulation (RNS) in anesthetized dogs. During 10 min of continuous RNS (1.5-2 Hz), the ANG II formation rates (ANG II-FR) and NE secretion rates (NE-SR) were determined at 1 and 10 min. Under control Zetia Drug Cost conditions, almost the same extent of increase in the NE-SR was observed at 1 and 10 min of RNS, whereas a significant increase in ANG II-FR was observed at 10 min but not at 1 min. During intrarenal arterial infusion of enalaprilat or losartan, the increase in NE-SR and reduction in renal blood flow at 10 min of RNS were suppressed, whereas the NE release and vasoconstriction responses at 1 min remained unaffected. The RNS-induced increases in ANG II-FR were completely abolished during infusion of enalaprilat. These results suggest that NE release on continuous RNS is enhanced by concomitantly formed ANG II, and this interaction depends on the time-related changes in intrarenal ANG II formation during RNS in the canine kidney.

Two non-sulfur containing ACE-inhibitors were tested concerning their local effect on experimental dermatitis in ovalbumin-sensitized guinea pigs. Enalaprilat but not cilazaprilat potentiated the ovalbumin-evoked inflammatory response. Furthermore, enalaprilat clearly enhanced the erythema evoked by substance P Seroquel Reviews Depression , whereas cilazaprilat did not. Concerning, the bradykinin-evoked erythema, enalaprilat significantly potentiated the response, whereas cilazaprilat only caused a slight increase. Our results suggest that different affinities for peptidases involved in degradation of inflammatory peptides can explain differences between the pro-inflammatory properties of enalaprilat and cilazaprilat.

1. Experiments were designed to evaluate the hypothesis that cyclo-oxygenase products modulate the influence of angiotensin II (AII) on the renal juxtamedullary microvasculature of enalaprilat-treated rats. 2. The in vitro blood-perfused juxtamedullary nephron technique was utilized to Imitrex Tab Dosage provide access to afferent arterioles, efferent arterioles and descending vasa recta located in the outer stripe of the outer medulla. 3. Baseline afferent arteriolar diameter was 20.8 +/- 1.9 microns in kidneys subjected to cyclo-oxygenase blockade (1 mumol/L piroxicam), a value significantly lower than that observed in untreated kidneys (26.1 +/- 1.0 microns). Baseline diameters of efferent arterioles and outer medullary descending vasa recta did not differ between untreated and piroxicam-treated groups. 4. Topical application of 1 nmol/L AII reduced blood flow through outer medullary descending vasa recta by 22 +/- 6% in untreated kidneys and by 24 +/- 7% in piroxicam-treated kidneys. 5. In untreated kidneys, AII (0.01-100 nmol/L) produced concentration-dependent afferent and efferent arteriolar constrictor responses of similar magnitudes. Neither afferent nor efferent arteriolar AII responsiveness was significantly altered in piroxicam-treated kidneys, although afferent responses exceeded efferent responses at AII concentrations > or = 10 nmol/L. 6. We conclude that endogenous cyclo-oxygenase products exert a vasodilator influence on juxtamedullary afferent arterioles under baseline conditions. Although cyclo-oxygenase inhibition had little effect on juxtamedullary microvascular responses to AII, the response to high AII concentrations may be modulated by cyclo-oxygenase products in a manner which delicately alters the relative influence of the peptide on pre- vs postglomerular resistances.

In vitro characteristics of the human erythrocytes loaded by enalaprilat have been evaluated. Erythrocytes obtained from a healthy volunteer were loaded by enalaprilat using the hypotonic preswelling method, and the loading parameters, drug-release kinetics, hematological indices, particle size distribution, scanning electron microscopy view, osmotic and turbulence fragilities, and deformability of the resulting carrier cells were determined along with the sham encapsulated and unloaded cells. Carrier erythrocytes, having acceptable loading parameters, released their drug content according to zero-order kinetics. Mean corpuscular hemoglobin and mean corpuscular hemoglobin content values of the cells decreased, particle size dispersion increased, the cells transformed to cup-form, the erythrocytes became more fragile against osmotic pressure and turbulent flow, and, Zoloft Overdose Fatal finally, the deformability of the cells decreased significantly upon drug loading.

Given the increasing popularity of aliskiren, particularly in combination with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (e.g. enalapril), it is important to determine whether its use in combination with these agents is associated with potentially life threatening safety events. Analytical methods for the simultaneous determination of both drugs in plasma and urine utilized in clinical studies on efficacy and safety have not been fully described in the literature. In this work, a new, fast and reliable method using a digitally controlled microextraction by packed sorbent (eVol(®)-MEPS) followed by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) was developed and validated to quantify an aliskiren, enalapril and its active metabolite in both human plasma and urine. Chromatographic separation was accomplished on a Poroshell 120 EC-C18 column with a gradient elution system consisting of 0.1% formic acid in water and acetonitrile (1.5min of total analysis). Detection was performed by multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode using electrospray ionization in the positive ion mode. This assay method has been fully validated in terms of selectivity, linearity, accuracy, precision, stability, recovery and matrix effect. The developed method can be applied to the routine determination of selected compounds in human plasma and urine and can be useful to elucidate the mechanisms of the potential risks triggered by the combination of aliskiren and enalapril as well as its active metabolite enalaprilat.

It has been proposed that the contribution of myocardial tissue angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) to angiotensin II (Ang II) formation in the human heart is low compared with non-ACE pathways. However, little is known about the actual in vivo contribution of these pathways to Ang II formation in the human heart. To examine angiotensin II formation in the intact human heart, we administered intracoronary 123I-labeled angiotensin I (Ang I) with and without intracoronary enalaprilat to orthotopic heart transplant recipients. The fractional conversion of Ang I to Ang II, calculated after separation of angiotensin peptides by HPLC, was 0.415 +/- 0.104 (n = 5, mean +/- SD). Enalaprilat reduced fractional conversion by 89%, to a value of 0.044 +/- 0.053 (n = 4, P = 0.002). In a separate study of explanted hearts, a newly developed in vitro Ang II-forming assay was used to examine cardiac tissue ACE activity independent of circulating components. ACE activity in solubilized left ventricular membrane preparations from failing hearts was 49.6 +/- 5.3 fmol 125I-Ang II formed per minute per milligram of protein (n = 8, +/- SE), and 35.9 +/- 4.8 fmol/min/mg from nonfailing human hearts (n = 7, P = 0.08). In the presence of 1 microM enalaprilat, ACE activity was reduced by 85%, to 7.3 +/- 1.4 fmol/min/mg in the failing group and to 4.6 +/- 1.3 fmol/min/mg in the nonfailing group (P < 0.001). We conclude that the predominant pathway for angiotensin II formation in the human heart is through ACE.

Fast atom bombardment, combined with high-energy collision-induced tandem mass spectrometry, has been used to investigate gas-phase metal-ion interactions with captopril, enalaprilat and lisinopril, all angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors.Suggestions for the location of metal-binding sites are presented. For captopril, metal binding occurs most likely at both the sulphur and the nitrogen atom. For enalaprilat and lisinopril, binding preferably occurs at the amine nitrogen.
