Considerable space is devoted to the results of their pioneer investigations on renin, hypertensinogen and hypertensin. In brief, they hold to the theory that renin plus hypertensinogen produces hypertensin (angiotonin), which is responsible for the arteriolar constricting that produces hypertension.
