The role of cyclic AMP in the regulation of renin release (RR) was studied in isolated rat kidneys, which were perfused at constant pressure in a single-pass system with a modified Krebs-henseleit solution. Isoproterenol (IP) (2 x 10(-9) to 2 x 10(-6) M) and 3-isobutyl-1-methyl-xanthine (IBMX) (4 x 10(-7) to 7 x 10(-5) M) induced a dose-dependent increase of renal perfusate flow, glomerular filtration rate and urinary sodium excretion. RR was stimulated up to 10-fold above control values within 5 min. At the lowest concentrations IP stimulated RR, but did not affect renal haemodynamics. When IP and IBMX were administered concomitantly, a supraadditive stimulation of RR was observed. Dibutyryl-cAMP (db-cAMP) and 8-Br-cGMP (10(-6) to 10(-4) M) produced a similar dose-dependent vasodilation and natriuresis, but differed in their action on RR. Within 15 min after the start of the infusion, db-cAMP increased RR up to 4-fold, whereas 8-Br-cGMP was without an effect. These results suggest that IP, IBMX and db-cAMP stimulated RR by increasing the concentrations of cAMP in the epitheloid cells and independently of changes in renal haemodynamics and sodium excretion.
