Presents a micropuncture study of potassium recycling. Factors asserting to the hypothesis that some of the potassium leaving the collecting tubule in the cortex is reabsorbed in the medullary collecting tubule; Affirmation that urinary excretion is supplied by and controlled through influences operating exclusively on potassium secretion in the distal nephron; Role of nephron proximal to the distal tubule in potassium recycling.

    To determine the effect of an acute load of potassium on potassium reabsorption by the loop of Henle in chronic renal failure, the right kidney was removed anti branches of the left renal artery were ligated in 17 rats. One week later and after 2 days of a potassium-free diet, rats were studied...

    Hyaluronan is apically secreted and expressed by proliferating or regenerating renal tubular cells. Background. Hyaluronan has diverse biologic functions in the body, varying from structural tasks to cell stress-induced CD44-mediated activation of intracellular signaling pathways. Hyaluronan...

    Rubidium uptake into individual tubule cells of rat renal cortex as measured by energy-dispersive X-ray microanalysis on freeze dried cryosections was used as an index of potassium transport. Over a 30 second period following intravenous infusion of rubidium (0.5 mmol/kg body wt) rubidium...

    The present study examined the effect of sodium transport inhibition amiloride, ouabain, and luminal sodium removal on potassium secretion in isolated conical collecting tubules from adrenalectomized and DOCA-stimulated rabbits. Collecting tubules from adrenalectomized rabbits had a mean...

    The origin of albuminuria remains controversial owing to difficulties in quantifying the actual amount of albumin filtered by the kidney. Here we used fluorescently labeled albumin, together with the powerful technique of intravital 2-photon microscopy to show that renal albumin filtration in...

    Cl- channels fused from basolateral mTAL membranes into planar bilayers have distinctive functional characteristics which, when taken together, are unique among Cl- channels. The properties of these 50 to 60 pS channels can account for the characteristics of basolateral Cl- conductances in...

    In vivo studies indicate that the extent of phosphate (Pi) reabsorption differs in proximal tubules of superficial (SC) and juxtamedullary (JM) nephrons. Since Na-gradient (Nao > Nai) dependent uptake of Pi by the luminal brushborder membrane (BBM) may be the rate-determining step in proximal...

  • Nephron segment-specific inhibition of Na+/K+-ATPase activity by cyclosporin A. Tumlin, James A.; Sands, Jeff M. // Kidney International;Jan1993, Vol. 43 Issue 1, p246 

    Decreased kaliuresis and hyperkalemia are common complications of cyclosporin A (CsA) therapy. If CsA significantly inhibits renal tubular Na+/K+-ATPase activity, the alteration in transepithelial K+ secretion and K+ homeostasis could result in hyperkalemia. To investigate this possibility, we...
