Product Description specificalRNLS, also named as Renalase, C10orf59 and MAO-C, belongs to the renalase family. It is probable FAD-dependent amine oxidase secreted by the kidney, which circulates in blood and modulates cardiac function and systemic blood pressure. RNLS degrades catecholamines such as dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine in vitro. It lowers blood pressure in vivo by decreasing cardiac contractility and heart rate and preventing a compensatory increase in peripheral vascular tone, suggesting a causal link to the increased plasma catecholamine and heightened cardiovascular risk. High concentrations of catecholamines activate plasma renalase and promotes its secretion and synthesis. RNLS has physiologically relevant catecholamine-oxidizing activity.
