Numerous studies indicate that renin is synthesized and secreted by the collecting duct. Collecting duct-derived renin may act directly upon intercalated and/or principal cells through direct interaction with prorenin receptors and/or through cleavage of proximal tubule-derived angiotensinogen to ultimately produce angiotensin II and activate AT1 receptors. Preliminary studies suggest that the net effect of CD renin would be to increase distal nephron salt reabsorption and increase blood pressure. Collecting duct renin production is markedly increased in diabetes and angiotensin-II induced hypertension, suggesting that this system may exert pathophysiological effects. In this brief review, we summarize the current literature on synthesis and regulation of CD renin and consider potential mechanisms by which it regulates blood pressure.
