In brief: Physiology

Angiotensin is converted from angiotensinogen and functions to help the body secrete aldosterone (which results in salt and water retention).
Angiotensin i converts to angiotensin ii, and angiotensin ii has potent vasoconstrictor and proinflammatory effects on the vasculature.
