Part Description

LP15273-3   Renin
The renal juxtaglomerular apparatus generates renin, an enzyme that converts angiotensinogen to angiotensin I. Angiotensinogen, derived from the liver, is an alpha-2-globulin. The inactive angiotensin I is enzymatically converted to the active octapeptide angiotensin II, which is a potent vasopressor responsible for hypertension of renal orgin. Renin activity is elevated in renal vascular diseases and suppressed in primary hyperaldosteronism. Renin activity is affected by diuretics and low sodium stimulates activity.
