Abstract

The tannins are natural polyphenols, able to precipitate water-soluble alkaloids and possess an inhibitory action on the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). We identified 18 polyphenolic compounds (tannins) from Chinese herbs and examined the in vitro effects of these tannins on ACE activity, including determination of the 50% inhibitory concentrations (IC 50), specificity and mode of inhibition. We also assessed the in vivo inhibitory effect of the tannins on angiotensin I-induced blood pressure elevation in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Nine tannins with an IC 50
