Nah, if renin isn't produced in adults, then they'll suffer from sudden change of blood pressure on urination because their RAAS don't work...:lol:

This is what i was afraid of: Confusion between 2 enzymes, that, for some reason, have the same name.
The gastric enzyme renine, also named labferment, has the before mentioned effect on the digestion of milk.

The other enzyme is the one victor mentioned, that is produced by the kidney. This one turns angiotensinogene into angiotensine I, that is later turned into the active angiotensine II, that has multiple offects, among which we can mention: stimulates aldosterone synthesis, produces hipertension and vasoconstriction...

I think those enzymes need a more systematic naming and classification...

turns angiotensinogen into angiotensin I by proteolysis.
