Abstract: The angiotensin peptides des-Asp - angiotensin I, angiotensin III and angiotensin IV are physiological peptides with cardioprotective properties. Angiotensins III and IV are also found in food. The transport properties of these peptides across the intestinal barrier will have a direct bearing on their prospective utility as therapeutic agents. Thus, their transport across the Caco-2 cell monolayers was investigated with a view of establishing the extent and probable route(s) of transport. The influence of physicochemical/ structural properties in influencing transport was also investigated. The results of this investigation showed different routes of transport for the angiotensin peptides with conformational characteristics playing an important role in influencing the prevailing route of transport.
