Abstract

Asada et al. determined the structure of angiotensin II type 2 receptor (AT2R) bound with endogenous peptide hormone, angiotensin II. The structure reveals important features of the angiotensin peptide for the receptor activation, which provides us a molecular basis to understand the physiological role of this peptide hormone.
