Assay Procedure
  • Activation Buffer: 50 mM Tris, 0.15 M NaCl, 10 mM CaCl2, 0.05% (w/v) Brij-35, pH 7.5 (TCNB)
  • Assay Buffer: 50 mM NaH2PO4, 1 M NaCl, pH 7.5
  • Recombinant Mouse Renin (rmRenin) (Catalog # 4277-AS)
  • Trypsin (Sigma, Catalog # T-1426)
  • AEBSF (Catalog # EI001), 100 mM stock in DMSO
  • Substrate: “Rat Renin FRET” 5-FAM/QXL™520 (AnaSpec, Catalog # 62334), 100 µM stock in DMSO
  • F16 Black Maxisorp Plate (Nunc, Catalog # 475515)
  • Fluorescent Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Gemini EM by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Activate rmRenin at 0.1 mg/mL with Trypsin at 2 µg/mL.
    1. Dilute rmRenin to 0.2 mg/mL in Activation Buffer.
    2. Dilute Trypsin to 4 µg/mL in Activation Buffer.
    3. Mix equal volumes of the diluted rmRenin and Trypsin.
    4. Incubate at 37 °C for 1 hour.
  2. Stop Trypsin activity with 1 mM AEBSF.
    1. Dilute AEBSF to 2 mM in Assay Buffer.
    2. Add a volume of 2 mM AEBSF equal to the reaction volume for 1 mM AEBSF and 50 µg/mL rmRenin.
    3. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  3. Dilute Substrate to 4 µM in Assay Buffer.
  4. Dilute rmRenin to 2 ng/µL in Assay Buffer.
  5. Load into a black well plate 50 µL of 2 ng/µL rmRenin (100 ng/well) and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 4 µM Substrate.
  6. Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 490 nm and 520 nm (top read), respectively, in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
  7. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (RFU/min) x Conversion Factor** (pmol/RFU)
amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank

     **Derived using calibration standard calibration standard 5-FAM (AnaSpec, Catalog # 60584).

  • rmRenin: 0.1 µg

Renin is a aspartyl protease that plays a crucial role in the regulation of blood pressure and salt balance through the renin-angiotensin system (1). It cleaves angiotensinogen to generate angiotensin I, which can be further converted by angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) to angiotensin II. Angiotensin II is the active molecule of the renin-angiotensin system that acts by binding to angiotensin receptors type 1 and 2 (AT-1 and AT-2), and has direct pathophysiological effects on the heart and peripheral vasculature (2). After secretion, inactive prorenin can be proteolytically activated by trypsin, cathepsin B, or other proteinases. Because of its unique specificity, inhibition of Renin is widely studied to provide selective therapy for hypertension, congestive heart failure and associated disorders (3).
