He also will disclose new data on the cell lines: SK17 that have the potential to differentiate into cells that express renin and smooth muscle cell-related genes characteristic of the juxtaglomerular apparatus of the kidney, Z2 that when differentiated using a proprietary protocol expresses relatively high levels of the bone growth factor genes BMP2 and BMP7 (also known as osteogenic protein-1 (OP-1), and J16 that expresses preadipocyte markers of interest to researchers in cosmetic dermatology and type II diabetes.
Further, there was a lack of convincing evidence that the renal innervation extended beyond the renal vasculature to either the tubules or the juxtaglomerular apparatus (4).
In addition, NOS is present in the renal tubular segments and the juxtaglomerular apparatus and may enhance the renal damage incurred after nephrotoxicant administration.
This results in a characteristic set of metabolic abnormalities, including: hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, hyperreninemia, hyperaldosteronism hyperplasia of the juxtaglomerular apparatus, and, in some patients, hypomagnesemia.
Juxtaglomerular cell tumors with renin secretion and tumors of the diffuse endocrine system, collectively known as carcinoids, have been reported.
Renin is synthesized and secreted into the blood exclusively by the juxtaglomerular cells of the kidney from prorenin, an inactive precursor, which is produced not only by the kidney, but by other tissues, including the adrenal glands, gonads, and the uteroplacental unit (2).
Renin is a proteolytic enzyme released from the juxtaglomerular cells of the kidney.
