Abstract

Cardiac tissue from hamster neonates was transplanted into the hamster cheek pouch. After vascularization of the transplanted tissue the vessels were tested for their ability to convert angiotensin I (A<inf>I</inf>) to angiotensin II (A<inf>II</inf>)-AI caused vasoconstriction of the coronary vessels which was reduced significantly by converting enzyme inhibitor and the An antagonist (Sar<sup>1</sup>-Ala<sup>8</sup>) angiotensin II. It was concluded that the vessels of transplanted cardiac allografts convert A<inf>I</inf>to A<inf>II</inf>in a manner similar to that observed in the whole heart indicating that this procedure provides a good model for studying the microcirculation of the heart.
