Kinetics of renin-antirenin reaction: micromethods for the assay of renin and antirenin.


Indirect micromethods were designed for the assay of human renin (lower limit 0.25 times 10-4 U and of antirenin to human renin (lower limit 3 times 10-4 U), with the rat used for the bioassay of the angiotensin produced by the action of renin on renin substrate. This made possible the assay of unusually small amounts (0.01 mu1) of serum for antirenin. The… (More)
