Abstract

A novel flavin adenine dinucleotide-dependent amine oxidase that is secreted by the kidney, circulates in the blood, and modulates cardiac function and systemic blood pressure has recently been discovered. Renalase appears to be a hormone that metabolizes catecholamines, and its discovery will facilitate our understanding of sympathetic regulation.
