Tissue distribution and characterization of prorenin-converting enzyme in mouse.

Abstract

Renin is produced from an inactive precursor, prorenin, through endoproteolytic cleavage at paired basic amino-acid residues. Using (35S)methionine-labeled prorenin, that was synthesized with Xenopus oocyte expression system, as a substrate, we have determined the tissue distribution and the nature of prorenin-converting activity in mouse. The highest… (More)
