84, the secretion of renin from juxtaglomerular cells is inhibited by Ca.
Sympathetic stimulation acts directly on the macula densa, a group of modified cells in the distal tubules near the end of the loop of Henle and closely associated with juxtaglomerular cells. The concentration of sodium in the tubular lumen is monitored by the macula densa cells, and its reduction can trigger communication between the macula densa and juxtaglomerular cells, resulting in renin release.
Arsenic trioxide inhibits growth of As4.1 juxtaglomerular cells via cell cycle arrest and caspase- independent apoptosis.
