The effects of endothelin-1 are mediated through two different receptors, ETA and ETB (72,73). One very important and unusual characteristic of ET-1 is the fact that it remains associated with its receptor for a very long period of time (up to 2 h after endocytosis in the case of ET-1 and ETA) leading to a prolonged biological effect (74). Increased sensitivity of the renal vasculature to ET-1 results from the increased density of receptors in the renal vasculature (75,76). Human kidneys have a predominance of ETB receptor over ETA, ETA receptors being localized in the vasculature and ETB in renal tubules and medulla (77,78).
