Pancreas Beta and Alpha Receptors effects on Insulin and Renin

I always confuse these effects
I came up with something to help us remember them

Always think Beta Booster

So:
  • Stimulation of beta 1 receptors leads to increased renin secretion
  • Stimulation of beta 2 receptors leads to increased insulin secretion

and for Alpha receptors it's the revere, which means:

  • Stimulation of Alpha 1 receptors leads to decreased renin secretion
  • Stimulation of Alpha 2 receptors leads to decreased insulin secretion
