UNII E7199S1YWR - LISINOPRIL
Lisinopril is a peptidyl dipeptidase inhibitor. It inhibits the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) that catalyses the conversion of angiotensin I to the vasoconstrictor peptide, angiotensin II. Angiotensin II also stimulates aldosterone secretion by the adrenal cortex. Inhibition of ACE results in decreased concentrations of angiotensin II which results in decreased vasopressor activity and reduced aldosterone secretion.
This drug has been classified in the anatomical therapeutic chemical (ATC) classification system as follows:
|C Cardiovascular system → C09 Agents acting on the renin-angiotensin system → C09A ACE inhibitors, plain → C09AA ACE inhibitors, plain
