It has been suggested that tissue-specific expression of the genes of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) leads to local generation of angiotensin (ANG) II with specific physiological implications. We demonstrate here that an intracellular RAS exists in adrenal glomerulosa cells; 60 h after bilateral nephrectomy and hemodialysis, renin and prorenin were(More)
In a previous study of the changes in glomerular structure in the isolated perfused kidney (IPK), perfusion at high pressures lead to an enlargement of the glomerular tuft and to the formation of giant capillaries. The present paper analyzes the morphological and dimensional changes of the peripheral glomerular capillary wall under these circumstances. The(More)
1. The effect of varying renal artery pressure between 160 and 40 mm Hg on renal blood flow and renin release was studied in seven conscious foxhounds under β-adrenergic blockade receiving a normal sodium diet (4.1 mmol/kg/day). Pressure was either increased by bilateral common carotid occlusion or reduced in steps and maintained constant by a(More)
1. The effect of bilateral carotid occlusion on carotid sinus pressure, systemic blood pressure, heart rate, renal blood flow, renal-venous and arterial plasma renin activity was studied in twelve trained conscious foxhounds on a normal sodium diet (4.7 mmol/kg per day). 2. When renal perfusion pressure was allowed to rise with systemic pressure by 51.0 +/-(More)
Stimulus-response curves relating renal-venous-arterial plasma renin activity difference (P.R.A.-difference) to mean renal artery pressure (R.A.P.) were studied in seven chronically instrumented conscious foxhounds with a daily sodium intake of 6.1 mmol/kg. R.A.P. was reduced in steps and maintained constant for 5 min using an inflatable renal artery cuff(More)
The localization of renin, converting enzyme (CE) and angiotensin II (ANG II) in the kidneys of rats and mice was investigated with immunocytochemical methods. According to the presence and specific intrarenal localization of these components of the renin-angiotensin-system (RAS) our results suggest that in addition to the well known systemic effects of the(More)
The relationship between renal artery pressure (RAP), renal blood flow (RBF), glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and the renal venous-arterial plasma renin activity difference (PRAD) was studied in 22 chronically instrumented, conscious foxhounds with a daily sodium intake of 6.6 mmol/kg. RAP was reduced in steps and maintained constant for 5 min using an(More)
