Angiotensin II (Ang II), a powerful vasoconstrictor peptide, affects blood pressure via maintenance of [Na.sup.+] homeostasis through its effects on the machinery for proximal tubular [Na.sup.+] transport, including the apical [Na.sup.+]/[H.sup.+] exchanger isoform 3 (NHE3), basolateral [Na.sup.+]/[K.sup.+] ATPase (NKA), and the [Na.sup.+]/HC[O.sub.3.sup.-] cotransporter (NBCel) [1-5].
