Divergent effects of central and peripheral renin on body weight and metabolism

Item Type:Editorial
Title:Divergent effects of central and peripheral renin on body weight and metabolism
Creators Name:Luft, F.C.
Abstract:Renin regulates blood pressure and fluid volume. In this issue of Cell Metabolism, Grobe et al. (2010) provide convincing evidence for a new role for brain renin in metabolic rate and weight loss. Renin overexpression or deletion peripherally from other studies suggests the opposite effect.
