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

Beta & Alpha 1 for renin
Beta & Alpha 2 for insulin
