Prostacyclin-independence in beta-adrenoceptor mediated renin release from dog renal cortical slices.


There is some controversy regarding whether stimulation of renin release by the beta-adrenergic system is dependent on prostaglandin (PG) production. We have examined this problem in renal cortical slices of the dog and have obtained the following results: (1) Isoproterenol (4 X 10(-6) M) stimulated renin release, but had no effect on the formation of 6… (More)
