Abstract Previous studies in isolated turtle bladder have demonstrated that high concentrations of carbonic anhydrase (CA) inhibitors limit H+ transport (JH) by reducing the catalyzed rate of CO2 hydroxylation and also by inhibiting some other step in the acidification process. One possibility is...
Abstract The contribution of impaired prolactin (PRL) degradation to the altered dynamics of this hormone in uremia was investigated in rats. Hyperprolactinemia developed after bilateral nephrectomy (BNx) or ligation of both ureters (BUL), whereas PRL levels remained normal in comparably azotemic...
Abstract Single nephron glomerular filtration rates (SNGFR) were measured by the 14Csodium ferrocyanide infusion technique in superficial (S) and juxtamedullary nephrons (JM) of anesthetized Brattleboro rats with or without diabetes insipidus (DI and HZ, respectively). Glomerular volumes (GV) and...
Abstract The recent finding that inhibitors of prostaglandin synthesis prevent the fall in urine concentration produced by papillary exposure challenges the hypothesis that contact between the pelvic urine and papilla is essential to the renal concentrating process. The present study examines the...
