Significance: It has been shown earlier that angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R) antagonist prolongs mammalian life span. Exendin-4/Exenatide is used in the treatment of diabetes mellitus type 2 (T2DM). This study suggests, for the first time, that  Exendin-4, by increasing the expression of its target gene,  it may suppress the expression of AT1R. And, thereby, it may (1) decrease blood pressure; and (2) and extend the lifespan of an individual. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing Exendin-4 or its analogues may be used to extend the life-span of an individual.
