This review highlights two distinct areas of the prostaglandin-renin interaction: (1) PG's as primary stimuli for renin release; and (2) PG's as integral cofactors for other stimuli to induce the juxtaglomerular cells to release renin. The relative potency of each of these stimuli will also be considered, and areas of the relationship between PG's and renin that particularly merit further clarification will be emphasized.
