High-Molecular-Weight Form of Renal Renin and Renin-Binding Substance in the Dog
A high-molecular-weight form of renin, has been reported to be detectable in kidney cortex (1), amniotic fluid (2), and plasma (3). However, little is known of its relevance in physiology and pathology, including the mechanism of formation.
