Molecular Formula: C9H14NO3S
Captopril is a sulfhydryl-containing analog of proline with antihypertensive action and abeyant antineoplastic activity. Captopril competitively inhibits angiotensin converting agitator (ACE), thereby abbreviating levels of angiotensin II, accretion claret renin activity, and abbreviating aldosterone secretion. This abettor may aswell arrest bump angiogenesis by inhibiting endothelial corpuscle cast metalloproteinases (MMPs) and endothelial corpuscle migration. Captopril may aswell display antineoplastic action absolute of furnishings on bump angiogenesis.
