Active ingredients

UNII: 69PN84IO1A - ENALAPRIL

Enalapril is a derivative of two amino-acids, L-alanine and L-proline. After absorption, enalapril is hydrolysed to enalaprilat, which inhibits ACE. Inhibition of ACE results in decreased plasma angiotensin II, which leads to increased plasma renin activity (due to removal of negative feedback of renin release), and decreased aldosterone secretion.
