Abstract

Activation of semipurified human kidney prorenin was found to occur in vitro in presence of a mixture of lipids that mimics the composition of t h e inner human cell membrane. The lipid-dependent activation was indeed only partial (38 ± 4%) when compared to that obtained by trypsin in liquid phase (100 µg/mL) used as a control of maximal activation (100%) under our experimental conditions (semipurified human kidney prorenin in presence of semipurified human plasma renin substrate at a concentration of 1400 ng/mL, at pH 7.2). The phenomenon was time-dependent up to 60 min whereas the angiotensin I generated after 120 min was virtually the same as that generated after 60 min thus indicating a possible reversible activation of human prorenin. We speculate that prorenin may be reversibly activated b y contact with the lipidic portion of the cell membrane either inside or outside the cells thus allowing a limited angiotensin II-generating cascade at a local site initiated by prorenin independently from the presence of active renin. Am J Hypertens 1989; 2: 920-923.
