Core Tip The angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) endogenously expressed in adrenocortical cells was known for decades to induce aldosterone production via a well-defined Gq protein-mediated signaling pathway. Over the past decade, a number of studies have elucidated another, β-arrestin-1 (βarr1)-dependent signaling cascade, which proceeds in parallel to, and independently of the Gq-mediated one, and also results in aldosterone synthesis and secretion from the adrenal cortex. Importantly, although all of the Food and Drug Administration-approved angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) drugs (AT1R antagonists) are very effective at blocking the Gq-mediated pathway, as expected, since they were designed to do so (i.e., to block the G protein signaling of the AT1R), they seem to display varying efficacies at blocking this new, βarr1-dependent pathway, which translates into significant variation at aldosterone suppression efficacies. In that context, candesartan and valsartan appear the most effective agents at blocking also the βarr1 pathway emanating from the adrenocortical AT1R, and thus, these two agents may be the best aldosterone suppressors within the ARB drug class.
