1. Plasma renin concentration was higher in pregnant rats than in non-pregnant female controls (43 +/- 5 vs. 12 +/- 1 ng/ml. per hr); 24 hr post partum, it was 8 +/- 2 ng/ml. per hr. 2. Twenty-four hours after bilateral nephrectomy, plasma renin concentrations in pregnant and non-pregnant rats were not significantly different from zero; the uterine venous minus arterial value in nephrectomized pregnant rts was not significantly different from zero either, and was not increased by haemorrhage… CONTINUE READING
