Neurons in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus mediate the serotonergic stimulation of renin secretion.


The aim of the present study was to resolve which hypothalamic nucleus is necessary for the serotonergic control of renin secretion. RU 24969 is considered a serotonin (5-HT1A/5-HT1B) agonist, while p-chloroamphetamine is a 5-HT releaser. Both drugs reliably elevate plasma levels of renin when injected peripherally. Previous studies suggest that… (More)
