Abstract: The pathological mechanism of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)‑induced liver injury involves a number of inflammatory mediators and cytokines. Angiotensin (Ang)‑(1‑7), a ligand for the proto‑oncogene Mas (Mas) receptor, antagonizes the actions of Ang II in the renin angiotensin system and exerts an anti‑inflammatory effect on LPS‑induced macrophages. The present study investigated the potential role of Ang‑(1‑7) in the regulation of inflammatory responses in LPS‑induced hepatocytes using the rat liver BRL cell line. T…
