In brief: Hypertension

Angiorensin ii is a potent vasoconstrictor and proinflammatory chemical that has effects on vascular endothelium that contribute to atherosclerosis and hypertension.
In the heart it increases hypertrophy and increases arrhythmic potential. It stimulates aldosterone . It is formed through a chemical conversion of angiotensin i to angiotensin ii mediated by sympathetic activation of ace.
