AGTR1 and AGTR2 protein expression. Kidney cortex protein level of AGTR1 (a) and AGTR2 (b) was assessed by Western blotting, and the AT1/AT2 (c) ratio presents a change of these receptors at 6, 12 and 18 months of age in relation to surgery. The AGTR1/AGTR2 ratio was significantly increased at 6 months of age, P < 0.05. Data are presented as mean ± SEM for n = 8 animal per group, *P < 0.05; ***P < 0.001
