A progressive rise in serum renin activity occurred in female rats with one to four hours of swimming. Tire exercise-induced increase in serum renin activity was not attenuated by exercise training. It was, however, blocked by propranolol suggesting that beta-adrenergic mechanisms are involved in increased renin release induced by exercise stress. The possibility that activation of the renin-angiotensin system contributes to hemodynamic alterations during exercise should be considered.
