1. A synthetic 3-([(14)C]valine)-labelled tetradecapeptide renin substrate was used to measure renin concentration. Renin liberated (14)C-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… CONTINUE READING
