Abstract

  • Renin regulates blood pressure and fluid volume. In this issue of Cell Metabolism, Grobe et al. (2010) provide convincing evidence for a new role for brain renin in metabolic rate and weight loss. Renin overexpression or deletion peripherally from other studies suggests the opposite effect.
