. Angiotensin II is produced via a two-step pathway catalyzed by the enzymes renin (released by juxtaglomerular [JG] cells of the kidney) and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). Low renal and systemic blood pressures serve as the primary stimuli for renin release, thus initiating the RAAS. The indicated More
