In this study, we provide experimental evidence in favor of the hypothesis that PPARs are involved in the control of renin gene expression. We predicted a role for PPARs in the regulation of renin gene expression using a molecular approach. There was strong initial evidence supporting such a role.7,12 A functional DNA-binding site, similar to the consensus motif for PPARs, was detected in the conserved 5′-renin gene enhancer. The retinoic acid nuclear receptor RXRα, which is the typical interaction partner for PPARs, binds to the mouse renin gene enhancer. Lastly, vitamin A, which is the natural ligand of RXRs, was found to stimulate the transcription of the renin gene.. Renin gene expression is upregulated by cAMP in CaLu-6 cells through stabilization of renin mRNA, although transcriptional mechanisms are also involved.17,21 We provided several lines of evidence that PPARγ stimulates renin gene expression without affecting the stability of renin mRNA (Figures 1, 2, and 5⇑⇑; data not ...
We studied the source of inactive renin in plasma by investigating the changes of active and inactive renin after bilateral nephrectomy in the rat. Active renin rapidly decreased after bilateral nephrectomy, with a half-life of approximately 15 minutes. Inactive renin, on the other hand, was 20.96 +/- 1.63 ng/ml/hr before nephrectomy and gradually increased to reach a peak at 20 hours after nephrectomy (193 +/- 62 ng/ml/hr). The molecular weight of active renin was approximately 40,000 and that of inactive renin was approximately 60,000 on a Sephacryl S-200 column. Inactive renin was separated from active renin by a Cibacron blue column, and the 0 time inactive renin eluted in the same fractions as the inactive renin from 20 hours after nephrectomy. The pH optimum of inactive renin in rat renin substrate was between 5.5 and 7.5, which differs from the optimal value of pepsin or cathepsin D. The increase of inactive renin in nephrectomized rats was not prevented by removal of the salivary glands, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Active and Inactive Renin after SQ 14225 (Captopril) Administration. AU - Goto, Toshikazu. AU - Abe, Keishi. AU - Otsuka, Yoichi. AU - Itoh, Toru. AU - Imai, Yutaka. AU - Satoh, Makito. AU - Omata, Ken. AU - Yoshinaga, Kaoru. PY - 1980/1/1. Y1 - 1980/1/1. N2 - The changes of active and inactive renin in plasma after the oral administration of 25 mg or 50 mg of SQ 14225 (Captopril) were studied in 29 hypertensive patients. Inactive renin was calculated as plasma renin activity (PRA) after cold storage minus PRA before cold storage. The patients were divided into 2 groups, responders and non-responders, according to the response of active renin to Captopril. In 9 responders, the active renin increased markedly while the inactive renin decreased. On the other hand, in 20 non-responders, both renin activities increased only slightly. These results suggest that inactive renin may be converted in vivo to active renin by Captopril.. AB - The changes of active and inactive renin in ...
A gene-drug interaction has been indicated between beta-1 selective beta-blockers and the Arg389Gly polymorphism (rs1801253) in the adrenergic beta-1 receptor gene (ADRB1). We studied the effect of the ADRB1 Arg389Gly polymorphism on plasma renin activity (PRA) and heart rate (HR) and the genotype-dependent response to metoprolol and exercise. Twenty-nine healthy male subjects participated in 2 treatment periods (placebo and metoprolol). A 15-min submaximal exercise test was performed after each treatment period, and PRA and HR were measured before and after exercise. Before exercise, median PRA was lower in Gly/Gly subjects than in Arg/Arg subjects after both placebo (P = 0.030) and metoprolol treatment (P = 0.020). After placebo, the exercise-induced PRA increase was greater in Gly/Gly than in Arg/Gly and Arg/Arg subjects (P = 0.033). The linear association between log(PRA) and log(metoprolol concentration) varied significantly between genotypes (P = 0.024). In Gly/Gly subjects, PRA decreased ...
The primary structure of human renin precursor has been deduced from its cDNA sequence. A library of cDNA clones was constructed from human kidney poly(A)+ RNA by applying the vector/primer method of Okayama and Berg. The library was screened for human renin sequences by hybridization with the previously cloned mouse renin cDNA. Of the 240,000 colonies screened, 35 colonies that were positive for hybridization were isolated. Two recombinant plasmids containing long inserts of about 1,300 and 1,600 base pairs were selected for sequence analysis. The amino acid sequence predicted from the cDNA sequence shows that the human renin precursor consists of 406 amino acids with a pre and a pro segment carrying 20 and 46 amino acids, respectively. A high degree of sequence homology was found upon comparison of the mouse and human renins. Close similarities were also observed in the primary structures of renin and aspartyl proteinases that have known three-dimensional structures, suggesting a similar ...

1. Blood pressure, heart rate and changes of plasma renin concentration (PRC) have been studied in nineteen patients with traumatic transection of the spinal cord, in relation to change of posture from supine to upright.. 2. When supine, subjects with cervical-cord transection had a normal blood pressure, a low heart rate and a high plasma renin concentration. On change of posture to the vertical, orthostatic hypotension developed, heart rate rose and PRC increased. Orthostatic hypotension was not a feature with change of posture in patients with transection of the thoracic spinal cord and PRC rose to a much smaller extent.. 3. It is concluded that release of renin on change of posture can occur in patients with spinal-cord transection. Release of renin in man does not depend therefore upon an intact autonomic nervous system, though it is possible that reflex sympathetic pathways in the isolated spinal cord may be involved. ...
The cardiovascular effects of vitamin D therapy (in humans) have been documented only in patients with known vitamin D deficiency or hyperparathyroidism (a surrogate marker of inadequate vitamin D activity). It is unknown whether the cardiovascular benefits of vitamin D therapy extend beyond these patients to the general hypertensive population. We propose to directly measure the effect of vitamin D therapy on plasma renin activity (PRA), plasma renin concentration (PRC), renin transcription (in mononuclear leukocytes), and blood pressure in hypertensive (but otherwise healthy) patients in a randomized, controlled, experimental trial. This will be the first study to assess vitamin D receptor (VDR) biological (PRA, PRC, renin mRNA, and polymorphisms) and hypertensive activity in patients without vitamin D deficiency. We hypothesize that vitamin D inhibition of renin transcription will produce significant reductions in PRA, PRC, renin transcription, inflammatory cytokines, SBP, and DBP, with ...
The nonfiltering kidney model was used to determine whether sodium or potassium inhibits renin secretion in the absence of a functional macula densa in dogs with thoracic inferior vena caval constriction. The control rate of renin secretion was high, and decreases were readily recognized. After control observations, hypertonic sodium chloride or hypertonic potassium chloride was infused into the renal artery for 1 hour, and renin secretion was measured at 15-minute intervals. An increase in renal venous plasma sodium concentration from 141 to 154-158 mEq/liter caused no change in renin secretion for the first 45 minutes of infusion in dogs with a nonfiltering kidney. In contrast, dogs with thoracic caval constriction but with a filtering kidney showed a striking decrease in renin secretion during intrarenal sodium infusion (3,097 to 1,061 ng angiotensin/min, P ,0.02). An increase in renal venous plasma potassium concentration from 3.9 to 6.1 mEq/liter in one group of dogs and from 4.9 to 8.3 ...
1. The effects of infusions of equimolar doses of angiotensin II (AII) and of Des1-angiotensin II (heptapeptide) on plasma renin activity, blood pressure and plasma aldosterone were compared in normal anaesthetized dexamethasone-suppressed dogs.. 2. Plasma renin activity was equally suppressed by both compounds. The increase in blood pressure induced by the heptapeptide averaged 43-62% of the increase during AII infusions. No significant differences in aldosterone increase were observed between AII and the heptapeptide. Plasma aldosterone, however, dropped significantly faster in heptapeptide-treated dogs after the end of the infusions.. 3. Sar1-Ala8-angiotensin II (saralasin, 400 pmol min-1 kg-1) suppressed plasma aldosterone that was stimulated by heptapeptide (20 pmol min-1 kg-1) completely. The same angiotensin antagonist had only a moderate effect on plasma aldosterone stimulated by AII. After stopping the antagonist infusion, plasma aldosterone rose significantly higher in dogs infused ...
Renin is regulated by angiotensin subtype 1 (AT1) receptor, but it is unknown whether angiotensin subtype 2 (AT2) receptor contributes to this regulation. We hypothesized that AT2 receptors inhibit angiotensin II (Ang II) through inhibition of renin biosynthesis. We monitored changes in renal Ang II, renin mRNA and protein expression, and plasma renin concentration (PRC) in response to renal cortical administration of the AT1 receptor blocker valsartan or the AT2 receptor blocker PD 123319 (PD) in conscious rats administered low sodium intake (LS). Renal interstitial Ang II increased by 47-fold in response to LS and increased further in response to valsartan or PD by 67-fold and 61-fold from normal sodium diet (NS) and by 41% and 29% from LS, respectively. Renin mRNA increased 63% during LS, and either valsartan or PD increased it further by 600% and 250% from NS and 538% and 187% from LS, respectively. Similarly, renal renin content and PRC increased in response to LS and increased further in response
A method is described for estimating plasma renin activity by using renin substrate present in plasma. This method differs from other indirect renin assay methods by (1) incubation in the absence of ions thus establishing conditions for zero order kinetics for the reaction between endogeneous renin and substrate and (2) the use of angiotensinase inhibitors di-sodium ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) and d-isopropylfluorophosphate (DFP). Recoveries of renin added to plasma in levels similar to those occurring in plasma are 85% SD±7%.. The incubation was done at pH 5.5 which was shown to be the optimum for human renin reacting with human substrate.. By incubating human plasma samples with known quantities of human renin, evidence was obtained suggesting that factors other than enzyme or total substrate concentrations affect the velocity of angiotensin formation. This variability of reaction rate may be explained by the existence of an inhibitor or activator in this system or by a variation ...
1. Total exchangeable sodium was measured in rats by a radio-sodium equilibration method, before and after the production of hypertension by clipping the left renal artery, with or without contralateral nephrectomy.. 2. Clipping of one renal artery with removal of the other kidney produced severe hypertension with no significant changes in exchangeable sodium or plasma renin levels.. 3. Clipping of one renal artery without contralateral nephrectomy produced severe hypertension in some animals, but little change in blood pressure in others. The animals which developed severe hypertension had a marked increase in exchangeable sodium with a concomitant rise in plasma renin; the animals with smaller rises in blood pressure did not have these changes.. 4. The fact that both plasma renin levels and exchangeable sodium levels increase according to this method, suggests that hypertension in the two-kidney model is renin-dependent.. ...

A comprehensive review of physiological and molecular biological evidence refutes claims for synthesis of renin by cardiac and vascular tissues. Cardiovascular tissue renin completely disappears after binephrectomy. Residual putative reninlike activity, where investigated, has had the characteristics of lysosomal acid proteases. Occasional reports of renin or renin mRNA in vascular and cardiac tissues can be ascribed to failure to remove the kidneys 24 hours beforehand, overloading of detection systems, problems with stringency in identification, and illegitimate transcripts after more than 25 cycles of polymerase chain reaction. Others, using more stringent criteria, have failed to detect cardiac and vascular renin mRNA. Accordingly, a growing number of investigators have concluded that the kidneys are the only source of cardiovascular tissue renin. Although prorenin is secreted from extrarenal tissues as well as from the kidneys, there is no evidence that it is ever converted to renin in the ...
Novel features of the present work include the extensive comparison of renin cells with numerous cells types from the renal cortex at different developmental points. Furthermore, we developed a single cell isolation and amplification procedure that allowed us to identify the transcriptome of individual adult JG cells. Specifically, we show that renin cells express a unique set of genes vastly different from other cell types in the kidney: They possess markers that topologically and functionally link them to arterial and interstitial pericytes, and express Akr1b7, a new and valuable marker for renin cells, independent from renin expression. Contrary to arteriolar cells distant from the glomerulus, which transiently express renin during development and/or a homeostatic threat, adult JG cells maintain a dual smooth muscle and renin phenotype, driven by a unique transcriptional network that maintains, at all cost, the cells dual endocrine and contractile functions necessary for the maintenance of ...
The results of the present study demonstrate the presence of increased concentrations of renin and prorenin in left ventricular tissue from patients with DCM. The cardiac levels of renin and prorenin were more than fivefold the cardiac levels in the donors. In addition, the cardiac tissue-to-plasma concentration ratios for renin and prorenin (molecular mass, 48 and 54 kD, respectively) were approximately threefold the ratio for serum albumin (molecular mass, 70 kD), indicating that the levels of renin and prorenin in cardiac tissue were too high to be explained by admixture with blood or by diffusion from the blood into the interstitial fluid. In normal porcine left ventricular tissue, the renin level was also higher than can be explained by its localization in extracellular fluid.4 Purified membrane fractions prepared from porcine left ventricular tissue contained renin,4 and specific binding of renin and prorenin to rat renal and other tissue membranes has been reported.35 36 In the present ...
The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is a hormone system that regulates blood pressure and extracellular volume in the body. The RAS sequentially processes angiotensinogen to angiotensin II (Ang II), a peptide hormone that is a potent vasoconstrictor. Inhibition of RAS components has been used successfully in the treatment of hypertension, heart failure and end organ damage. Renin catalyzes the first and rate-limiting step of the RAS cascade and renin is specific for angiotensinogen. Blockade of Ang II production by direct inhibition of renin has long been a therapeutic goal. Early renin inhibitors, such as enalkiren and remikiren, were effective in blood pressure lowering. However, due to poor oral bioavailability, duration of action, and high costs of synthesis, these early peptidomimetic inhibitors never progressed to pivotal clinical studies [1]. Continued clinical interest in renin has led to the recent approval of the first renin inhibitor, aliskiren (Tekturna™), a non-peptidic inhibitor ...
Peptides , Angiotensins and Related Peptides , Peptide Substrate for Renin 520 Assay kit; This FRET peptide is a specific substrate for renin. Aspartyl protease cleaves angiotensinogen to yield angiotensin I, which is further converted to angiotensin II. The renin-angiotensin system is a coordinated hormonal cascade in the control of cardiovascular, renal, and adrenal function. It governs body fluid and electrolyte balance, as well as arterial pressure. Since an overactive renin-angiotensin system leads to hypertension, renin is an attractive target for the treatment of this disease. This renin peptide substrate may be used for screening of renin inhibitors. In the FRET peptide, the fluorescence of 5-FAM is quenched by QXL 520. Upon cleavage into two separate fragments by renin, the fluorescence of 5-FAM is recovered, and can be monitored at excitation/emission = 490/520 nm. This substrate is employed in the SensoLyte 520 Renin Assay Kit, cat # 72040.
1. A synthetic 3-([14C]valine)-labelled tetradecapeptide renin substrate was used to measure renin concentration. Renin liberated 14C-labelled angiotensin I, which was separated from the labelled substrate by paper chromatography. The conversion of substrate into angiotensin I was quantitated by liquid-scintillation counting of radioactivity. 2. The rate of conversion of the substrate into angiotensin I was shown to be linearly related to renin concentration and time under suitable conditions. Angiotensin generation measured in this system agrees well with that measured by bioassay. 3. It is suggested that the use of a pure substrate offers advantages that include the standardization of current units of renin measurement.. ...
Peptides , Fluorescent Labeled Peptides , Renin FRET Substrate I; DABCYL-GABA-Ile-His-Pro-Phe-His-Leu-Val-Ile-His-Thr-EDANS (also called Renin Substrate I in some literature) contains a renin cleavage site that occurs in the N-terminal peptide of human angiotensinogen. Cleavage of the substrate occurs specifically at the Leu-Val bond and corresponds to the renin cleavage site of angiotensinogen. This fluorogenic peptide substrate is used to continuously measure the proteolytic activity of human renin. The assay relies upon FRET-mediated, intramolecular fluorescence quenching that occurs in the intact peptide substrate. Efficient fluorescence quenching occurs as a result of favorable energetic overlap of the EDANS excited state and the DABCYL absorption, and the relatively long excited state lifetime of the EDANS fluorophore. Cleavage of the substrate by renin liberates the peptidyl-EDANS fragment from proximity with the DABCYL acceptor, restoring the fluorescence of the EDANS moiety. This leads to a
TY - JOUR. T1 - Role of 18-hydroxylated cortisols in hypertension. AU - Gomez-Sanchez, Celso E.. AU - Gomez-Sanchez, elise P.. AU - Holland, O. Bryan. PY - 1987. Y1 - 1987. N2 - The isolation of 18-hydroxycortisol and 18-oxocortisol was recently described. These steroids have been shown to be excreted in exaggerated quantities in patients with primary aldosteronism, with adrenal adenomas and in glucocorticoid suppressible aldosteronism. We report the measurement of both steroids in the urine of patients with essential hypertension. 18-Oxocortisol excretion did not differ in patients with normal renin essential hypertension (0.7 ± 0.7 μg/24 h), low renine essential hypertension (0.7 ± 0.5 μg/24 h) and normal individuals (1.2 ±0.9 μg/24 h). Patients with normal renin hypertension excreted 54 ± 43 μg/24 h of 18-hydroxycortisol, those with low renin essential hypertension excreted 58 ± 54 μg/24 h, and normal individuals excreted 63 ± 36 βg/24 h. Three of the low renin and one of the ...

Renin release into plasma has been used to investigate the drug dose-dependence of renin-angiotensin system inhibition because it is proportional to the interruption of the permanent negative feedback loop of angiotensin II on renin secretion. We inv
The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system controls blood pressure and salt-volume homeostasis. Renin, which is the first enzymatic step of the cascade, is critically regulated at the transcriptional level. In the present study, we investigated the role of liver X receptor α (LXRα) and LXRβ in the regulation of renin. In vitro, both LXRs could bind to a noncanonical responsive element in the renin promoter and regulated renin transcription. While LXRα functioned as a cAMP-activated factor, LXRβ was inversely affected by cAMP. In vivo, LXRs colocalized in juxtaglomerular cells, in which LXRα was specifically enriched, and interacted with the renin promoter. In mouse models, renin-angiotensin activation was associated with increased binding of LXRα to the responsive element. Moreover, acute administration of LXR agonists was followed by upregulation of renin transcription. In LXRα-/- mice, the elevation of renin triggered by adrenergic stimulation was abolished. Untreated LXRβ-/- mice ...
1. Tachyphylaxis occurs when renin is repeatedly injected into dogs and cats regardless of whether they are normal, anesthetized, pithed, hepatectomized, suprarenalectomized, nephrectomized, or eviscerated.. 2. The pressor response to renin in brief experiments is independent of the height of the arterial pressure or the presence of the suprarenals. Evisceration and large doses of ergotamine reduce the response. It is largely uninfluenced by pithing, intracisternal injection of renin, cocaine, strychnine, caffeine, and infusion of sodium bicarbonate or hydrochloric acid. It may be slightly increased by large blood transfusions or hepatectomy but the result is short lived.. 3. There is no parallelism between the pressor responses to carotid sinus stimulation, adrenine, and tyramine on the one hand and renin on the other.. 4. Section of the brain may be followed by depressor responses to renin.. 5. Intracisternal injection of renin elicits no significant rise in blood pressure or other circulatory ...
Renin inhibitors are a group of pharmaceutical drugs used primarily in treatment of essential hypertension (high blood pressure). These drugs inhibit the first and rate-limiting step of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), namely the conversion of angiotensinogen to angiotensin I. This leads to a totality in absence of Angiotensin II based on the rationale that renin only acts to inhibit this step unlike Angiotensin Converting Enzyme which is also involved in other biochemical reactions. Since the 1970s, scientists have been trying to develop potent inhibitors with acceptable oral bioavailability. The process was difficult and took about three decades. The first and second generations faced problems such as poor bioavailability and lack of potency. Finally, the third generation was discovered. These compounds were nonpeptidic renin inhibitors, had acceptable oral bioavailability and were potent enough for clinical use. The first drug in this class was aliskiren, which received a ...
The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) plays an important role in cardiovascular and electrolyte regulation in health and disease. Juxtaglomerular cells in the kidney regulate endocrine RAAS by physiologically controlling conversion of prorenin and secretion of renin. The classical baroceptor, neurogenic, and macula densa mechanisms regulate renin expression at the cellular level by Ca2+, adenosine 3,5-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP), and chemiosmotic forces (K+, Cl-, and water flux coupled to H+ movement). The baroceptor mechanism (through Ca2+) activates K+ and Cl- channels in the surface membrane and deactivates a KCl-H+ exchange chemiosmotic transporter in the secretory granular membrane. The neurogenic mechanism (through cAMP) promotes prorenin processing to renin. The macula densa mechanism (through K+ and Cl-) involves the processing of prorenin to renin. Ca2+, by inhibiting the KCl-H+ exchange transporter, prevents secretory granules from engaging in chemiosmotically mediated exocytosis.

Experimental studies in the dog indicate that the liver may be the major site of renin inactivation (Heacox and associates, Circ. Res. 21: 149, 1967). To apply this observation to humans, the hepatic and renal arteriovenous (AV) differences for renin activity were measured simultaneously in patients undergoing diagnostic venous catheterization. The plasma renin activity (PRA) was measured by a modification of the Boucher method. In 8 patients, renal venous PRA was higher than arterial PRA, indicating the renal secretion of renin into the circulation. In 6 of these, a wide renal AV difference was associated with a renal artery stenosis. ...

Renin inhibitors inhibit the enzyme renin, which result in widening of blood vessels, making it easier for the blood to flow, which lowers blood pressure.
Prorenin is a glycosylated aspartic protease that consists of 2?homologouslobes and is the precursor of renin. Renin activates the renin-angiotensinsystem by cleaving angiotensinogen, produced by the liver, to yield angiotensinI, which is further converted into angiotensin II by ACE, theangiotensin-converting enzyme primarily within the capillaries of the lungs. Ithas been reported that the levels of circulating prorenin (but not renin) areincreased in diabetic subjects.
ACE inhibitors block the conversion of angiotensin I to the vasoconstrictor angiotensin II. ACE inhibitors also prevent the degradation of bradykinin and other vasodilatory prostaglandins. ACE inhibitors also increase plasma renin levels and reduce aldosterone levels. Net result is systemic vasodilation. Therapeutic Effects: Lowering of blood pressure in hypertensive patients. ↓ afterload and symptoms in patients with heart failure. ...

The mechanism whereby renal nerves influence the renin-release response to aortic constriction was examined in a nonfiltering ureter-occluded kidney preparation in anesthetized dogs. The kidney was rendered nonfiltering by a combination of mannitol infusion and ureteral occlusion. Suprarenal aortic constriction reduced renal perfusion pressure to 61 +/- 7 mmHg and increased renin release from 16.7 +/- 4.1 to 26.1 +/- 6.0 U/min. At normal renal perfusion pressure, low-frequency renal nerve stimulation (0.25 Hz) increased renin release by 11.6 +/- 4.2 to 25.1 +/- 7.6 U/min. The effect of combined low-level renal nerve stimulation and aortic constriction on renin release was additive; renin release increased by 24.6 +/- 6.5 to 39.5 +/- 7.3 U/min. Propranolol or metoprolol, administered intrarenally at 2 microgram . min-1 . kg-1, abolished the renin-release response to low-level renal nerve stimulation at normal renal perfusion pressure. These data provide evidence that low-frequency renal nerve ...
Role of the renin-angiotensin aldosterone system in hypertension and blood pressure control. The primary aim of our research is to understand the role of the renin-angiotensin system in the regulation of blood pressure and tissue perfusion. We previously showed that this kidney-derived system reacts to maintain blood pressure and tissue perfusion when sodium intake is low and reciprocally turns off when sodium intake, perfusion pressure, or blood pressure are elevated. In certain people the system does not suppress appropriately. Such patients develop hypertension, which can be treated with anti-renin system drugs. In both population studies and in animal models we showed that hypertension associated with high renin levels is more likely to result in heart attacks and strokes than other forms of hypertension.. Current research questions address the mechanism whereby the renin system maintains pressure and tissue perfusion. We have recently developed evidence for a specific receptor for renin. ...

Increased activity of the renin-angiotensin system in cirrhosis may aggravate salt and water retention by promoting the release of aldosterone. It has been postulated that elevation of plasma renin activity (PRA) due to increased production by the kidney may be augmented by impaired hepatic inactivation in the diseased liver, but this is unconfirmed.. Therefore, PRA was measured by the method of Boucher and associates in blood taken simultaneously from the hepatic vein and a peripheral vein or artery (there being no significant arterioventricular difference) in 18 patients with cirrhosis and 13 control subjects without liver disease.. As expected, peripheral PRA ...

The phenomenon of renin producing cells having a different plasticity in the immature and the adult kidney is known for a long time. However, it is unknown what factors are responsible for this typical switch on and off of renin expression and for the disappearance of renin producing cells during nephrogenesis and after chronic stimulation. To determine these factors, the 3-dimensional pattern of renin expressing cells as well as the development of the arterial vasculature in a normal mouse kidney during nephrogenesis was characterized. For the 3-dimensional reconstructions, we used serial slices of mouse kidneys of embryonic day E13 up to postpartal day 10 as well as adult kidneys, on which we marked the expression of renin and smooth muscle actin as marker for the vascular tree by immunofluorescence. Renin was detected for the first time in the media of arcuate main arteries at embryonic day E15. Based on this initial expression we on the one hand observed a retrograde expansion to the ...
Cell culture. The mouse renin-expressing cell line As4.1 (catalog no. CRL2193; ATCC) was previously isolated from the kidneys of transgenic animals harboring a chimeric renin gene promoter/SV40 T antigen construct (29). Cells were cultured in high-glucose DMEM (Invitrogen Corp.) supplemented with 10% fetal calf serum and antibiotics (penicillin and streptomycin) at 37°C in 5% CO2. For cAMP stimulation, cells were first made quiescent in DMEM containing 0.1% fetal calf serum for 12 hours. Fresh medium was added containing DMEM with 0.1% fetal calf serum plus either vehicle (PBS) or 1 mM 8-Br-cAMP, and cells were incubated for different amounts of time. For the generation of As4.1 cell lines stably expressing GFP, LXRα, LXRβ, HA-LXRα, and HA-LXRβ cDNAs were cloned into a MSCV-IRES-GFP plasmid backbone (a sequence encoding for the HA tag was added by PCR immediately 5′ of the start codon, in frame with the coding sequence). Retroviral particles were then obtained by tripartite transfection ...
