Renin is an enzyme involved in the stepwise generation of angiotensin II. Juxtaglomerular cells are the main source of plasma renin, but renin activity has been detected in other cell types. In the present study we evaluated the presence of renin mRNA in adult male Wistar rat and mouse (C-57 Black/6) mesangial cells (MC) and their ability to process, store(More)
A feedback thermo-resistive sensor-based measurement scheme was proposed to estimate physical quantities like solar radiation (H), fluid velocity (U) and environment temperature (T a). It was implemented as an environment temperature meter, using PI controller. Controller implementation was done digitally using FPGA. Practical results are presented.
