Stress-induced activation of inactive renin. Molecular weight aspects.


We have investigated the response of plasma renin activity (PRA), total, active, and inactive plasma renin concentration (PRC) to immobilization stress in rats. A great increase of PRA was already found after 5 min of immobilization. In contrast, total PRC was elevated only after 1 h of stress. During the initial 15 min, the increase of active PRC was… (More)
