6) the morphologic differential diagnosis had included neuroendocrine cell neoplasm due to solid compact architecture and small cells, t(6;11) RCC due to focally biphasic appearance and globular hyaline material, and juxtaglomerular cell tumor (which would have been expected to have -9 and -11).
In adults and adolescents, the more common response to airway manipulation is hypertension (HTN) and tachycardia mediated by the cardioaccelerator nerves and sympathetic chain ganglia including release of renin from the renal juxtaglomerular apparatus, which is innervated by p-adrenergic nerve terminals.
Primary aldosteronism is characterized by autonomous production of aldosterone by the adrenal glands along with suppressed renin production by the renal juxtaglomerular apparatus.
It regulates systemic vascular resistance and circulatory volume by water and electrolyte balance.7 Renin is synthesised from precursor prorenin by the juxtaglomerular apparatus cells.
For this reason renal perfusion pressure decreases and the juxtaglomerular cells secrete renin.
Cascade of RAS starts with the secretion of renin from the juxtaglomerular cells in the kidneys.
Renin release is stimulated from the juxtaglomerular apparatus by the renal baroreceptor and sodium chloride delivery into the macula densa (26).
Juxtaglomerular cell tumor (JGCT) is a rare renal tumor, first reported by Robertson et al.
Indeed, when the juxtaglomerular cells in the kidney detect a drop in the circulating volume of plasmatic sodium levels, they secrete renin.
Moreover, TSA also decreased juxtaglomerular hyperplasia in damaged kidneys and the degree of fibrosis analyzed by protein levels of fibronectin and collagen I.
Renin is secreted by the juxtaglomerular cells of the kidney in response to decreased renal blood flow.
