As renin travels through the bloodstream, it binds to an inactive plasma protein, angiotensinogen, activating it to become angiotensin I. The second step is the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II as it passes through the lung capillaries. Angiotensin II is a vasoconstrictor and therefore raises blood pressure in the body’s arterioles, however, its main effect is on the adrenal gland.
