Induction of renin release from isolated glomeruli by inorganic mercury(II).

Abstract

Mercury(II) ions are known to accumulate in the kidney and their effect upon the renin-angiotensin system has also been described. The question, however, whether mercury(II) also exerts direct effect on the juxtaglomerular cells (JGC) to induce renin release remained to be answered. Suspension of isolated glomeruli was used to measure the mercury(II… (More)
