1.

Acetylcholine

A neurotransmitter found at neuromuscular junctions, autonomic ganglia, parasympathetic effector junctions, a subset of sympathetic effector junctions, and at many sites in the central nervous system. [from MeSH]

2.

Angiotensin II

An octapeptide that is a potent but labile vasoconstrictor. It is produced from angiotensin I after the removal of two amino acids at the C-terminal by ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME. The amino acid in position 5 varies in different species. To block VASOCONSTRICTION and HYPERTENSION effect of angiotensin II, patients are often treated with ACE INHIBITORS or with ANGIOTENSIN II TYPE 1 RECEPTOR BLOCKERS. [from MeSH]

3.

Angiotensin

Expressed in liver by human AGT Gene (Serpin Family), secreted 485-aa 53-kDa Angiotensinogen is cleaved by renin (in response to lowered blood pressure) to inactive decapeptide Angiotensin I, which is cleaved by ACE to generate active octapeptide vasopressor Angiotensin II (maintains blood pressure and regulates the volume and mineral balance of body fluids). Angiotensin II is cleaved to Angiotensin III heptapeptide, an aldosterone stimulant. [from NCI]
