Adducin polymorphism affects renal proximal tubule reabsorption in hypertension. (1/317)

Abnormalities in renal sodium reabsorption may be involved in the development and maintenance of experimental and clinical hypertension. Adducin polymorphism is thought to regulate ion transport in the renal tubule. It has recently been shown that there is a significant linkage of alpha-adducin locus to essential hypertension and that the 460Trp allele is associated with hypertension. Patients with this allele display larger blood pressure changes with body sodium variation. The aim of this study was to test whether alpha-adducin polymorphism is involved in abnormalities of renal function. Because proximal tubular reabsorption has been shown to be tightly coupled to renal perfusion pressure, this segmental tubular function was investigated in 54 (29 Gly/Gly and 25 Gly/Trp) untreated hypertensive patients in basal conditions with the use of endogenous lithium concentration and uric acid. Fractional excretions of lithium and uric acid were significantly decreased in the Gly/Trp hypertensive patients compared with the Gly/Gly hypertensives. The contribution of alpha-adducin to fractional excretion of lithium was investigated by multiple regression analysis. Adducin genotype was significantly (R2=0.11, F=6.5; P<0.01) and directly related to fraction excretion of lithium; gender, age, urinary Na+, urinary uric acid, mean blood pressure, and plasma renin activity were not related. In conclusion, the adducin gene can be considered to be a 'renal hypertensive gene' that modulates the capacity of tubular epithelial cells to transport Na+ and hence contributes to the level of blood pressure.  (+info)

Regulation of renal urea transporters. (2/317)

Urea is important for the conservation of body water due to its role in the production of concentrated urine in the renal inner medulla. Physiologic data demonstrate that urea is transported by facilitated and by active urea transporter proteins. The facilitated urea transporter (UT-A) in the terminal inner medullary collecting duct (IMCD) permits very high rates of transepithelial urea transport and results in the delivery of large amounts of urea into the deepest portions of the inner medulla where it is needed to maintain a high interstitial osmolality for concentrating the urine maximally. Four isoforms of the UT-A urea transporter family have been cloned to date. The facilitated urea transporter (UT-B) in erythrocytes permits these cells to lose urea rapidly as they traverse the ascending vasa recta, thereby preventing loss of urea from the medulla and decreasing urine-concentrating ability by decreasing the efficiency of countercurrent exchange, as occurs in Jk null individuals (who lack Kidd antigen). In addition to these facilitated urea transporters, three sodium-dependent, secondary active urea transport mechanisms have been characterized functionally in IMCD subsegments: (1) active urea reabsorption in the apical membrane of initial IMCD from low-protein fed or hypercalcemic rats; (2) active urea reabsorption in the basolateral membrane of initial IMCD from furosemide-treated rats; and (3) active urea secretion in the apical membrane of terminal IMCD from untreated rats. This review focuses on the physiologic, biophysical, and molecular evidence for facilitated and active urea transporters, and integrative studies of their acute and long-term regulation in rats with reduced urine-concentrating ability.  (+info)

Lessons on renal physiology from transgenic mice lacking aquaporin water channels. (3/317)

Several aquaporin-type water channels are expressed in kidney: AQP1 in the proximal tubule, thin descending limb of Henle, and vasa recta; AQP2, AQP3, and AQP4 in the collecting duct; AQP6 in the papilla; and AQP7 in the proximal tubule. AQP2 is the vasopressin-regulated water channel that is important in hereditary and acquired diseases affecting urine-concentrating ability. It has been difficult to establish the roles of the other aquaporins in renal physiology because suitable aquaporin inhibitors are not available. One approach to the problem has been to generate and analyze transgenic knockout mice in which individual aquaporins have been selectively deleted by targeted gene disruption. Phenotype analysis of kidney and extrarenal function in knockout mice has been very informative in defining the role of aquaporins in organ physiology and addressing basic questions regarding the route of transepithelial water transport and the mechanism of near iso-osmolar fluid reabsorption. This article describes new renal physiologic insights revealed by phenotype analysis of aquaporin-knockout mice and the prospects for further basic and clinical developments.  (+info)

Postnatal time frame for renal vulnerability to enalapril in rats. (4/317)

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition or angiotensin II type 1 receptor blockade in neonatal, but not in weaned, rats induces irreversible renal histologic abnormalities and an impaired urinary concentrating ability. The aim of the present study was to define the postnatal time frame when the rat kidney is vulnerable to an interruption of the renin-angiotensin system. Male Wistar rats received daily injections of enalapril (10 mg/kg, intraperitoneally) during different age intervals within 3 to 24 d,of age. Fluid handling and urinary concentrating ability, renal function under pentobarbital anesthesia, and kidney histology using stereologic techniques were evaluated in adult rats. Enalapril treatment within 3 to 13 d after birth induced abnormalities in renal function and morphology long-term, whereas treatment initiated at 14 d of age did not. The main histologic alterations were papillary atrophy, and a reduction in the volume of tubular epithelial cells in association with an increase in the proportion of interstitium, throughout the cortex and outer medulla. Functionally, the predominant defect was an impairment in urinary concentrating ability, which correlated with the degree of papillary atrophy. In conclusion, the vulnerable age interval for the induction of irreversible renal abnormalities by enalapril was the first 13 d after birth in the rat. This postnatal time span coincides with the completion of nephrogenesis and a period of marked tubular growth and differentiation, suggesting a pivotal role for angiotensin II in these processes.  (+info)

Decreased renal Na-K-2Cl cotransporter abundance in mice with heterozygous disruption of the G(s)alpha gene. (5/317)

Transport processes along the nephron are regulated in part by hormone stimulation of adenylyl cyclases mediated by the heterotrimeric G protein G(s). To assess the role of this pathway in the regulation of Na-K-2Cl cotransporter abundance in the renal thick ascending limb (TAL), we studied mice with heterozygous disruption of the Gnas gene, which codes for the alpha-subunit of G(s). Outer medullary G(s)alpha protein abundance (as assessed by semiquantitative immunoblotting) and glucagon-stimulated cAMP production were significantly reduced in the heterozygous G(s)alpha knockout mice (GSKO) relative to their wild-type (WT) littermates. Furthermore, Na-K-2Cl cotransporter protein abundance in the outer medulla was significantly reduced (band density, 48% of WT). In addition, GSKO mice had a significantly reduced (72% of WT) urinary osmolality in response to a single injection of 1-deamino-[8-D-arginine]vasopressin (DDAVP), a vasopressin analog. In contrast, outer medullary protein expression of the type 3 Na/H exchanger (NHE-3) or Tamm-Horsfall protein did not differ between the GSKO mice and their WT littermates. However, abundance of type VI adenylyl cyclase was markedly decreased in the outer medullas of GSKO mice, suggesting a novel feed-forward regulatory mechanism. We conclude that expression of the Na-K-2Cl cotransporter of the TAL is dependent on G(s)alpha-mediated hormone stimulation, most likely due to long-term changes in cellular cAMP levels.  (+info)

Altered expression of Na transporters NHE-3, NaPi-II, Na-K-ATPase, BSC-1, and TSC in CRF rat kidneys. (6/317)

In chronic renal failure (CRF), reduction in renal mass leads to an increase in the filtration rates of the remaining nephrons and increased excretion of sodium per nephron. To address the mechanisms involved in the increased sodium excretion, we determined the total kidney levels and the densities per nephron of the major renal NaCl transporters in rats with experimental CRF. Two weeks after 5/6 nephrectomy (reducing the total number of nephrons to approximately 24 +/- 8%), the rats were azotemic and displayed increased Na excretion. Semiquantitative immunoblotting revealed significant reduction in the total kidney levels of the proximal tubule Na transporters NHE-3 (48% of control), NaPi-II (13%), and Na-K-ATPase (30%). However, the densities per nephron of NHE-3, NaPi-II, and Na-K-ATPase were not significantly altered in remnant kidneys, despite the extensive hypertrophy of remaining nephrons. Immunocytochemistry confirmed the reduction in NHE-3 and Na-K-ATPase labeling densities in the proximal tubule. In contrast, there was no significant reduction in the total kidney levels of the thick ascending limb and distal convoluted tubule NaCl transporters BSC-1 and TSC, respectively. This corresponded to a 3.6 and 2.5-fold increase in densities per nephron, respectively (confirmed by immunocytochemistry). In conclusion, in this rat CRF model: 1) increased fractional sodium excretion is associated with altered expression of proximal tubule Na transporter expression (NHE-3, NaPi-II, and Na-K-ATPase), consistent with glomerulotubular imbalance in the face of increased single-nephron glomerular filtration rate; and 2) compensatory increases in BSC-1 and TSC expression per nephron occur in distal segments.  (+info)

Vasopressin and urinary concentrating activity in diabetes mellitus. (7/317)

In diabetes mellitus (DM), the high urine flow rate suggests that urinary concentrating capacity is impaired. However, several studies have shown that vasopressin is elevated in DM and the consequences of this elevation have not yet been characterized. This study reevaluated renal function and water handling in male Wistar rats with Streptozotocin-induced DM, and in control rats. During five weeks after induction of DM, urine was collected in metabolic cages and a blood sample was drawn during the third week. Control rats (CONT) were studied in parallel. On week 3, urine flow rate was tenfold higher in DM than in CONT rats and urinary osmolality was reduced by half along with a markedly higher osmolar excretion (DM/CONT = 5.87), due for a large part to glucose but also to urea (DM/CONT = 2.49). Glucose represented 52% of total osmoles (90.3 +/- 6.5 mmol/d out of 172 +/- 14 mosm/d). Free water reabsorption was markedly higher in DM rats compared to CONT (326 +/- 24 vs 81 +/- 5 ml/d). In other rats treated in the same way, urinary excretion of vasopressin was found to be markedly elevated (15.1 +/- 4.1 vs 1.44 +/- 0.23 ng/d). In DM rats, glucose concentration in urine was 17 fold higher than in plasma, and urea concentration 14 fold higher. Both urine flow rate and free water reabsorption were positively correlated with the sum of glucose and urea excretions (r = 0.967 and 0.653, respectively) thus demonstrating that the urinary concentrating activity of the kidney increased in proportion to the increased load of these two organic solutes. These results suggest that vasopressin elevation in DM contributes to increase urinary concentrating activity and thus to limit water requirements induced by the metabolic derangements of DM. The possible deleterious consequences of sustained high level of vasopressin in DM are discussed.  (+info)

Abnormal water metabolism in mice lacking the type 1A receptor for ANG II. (8/317)

Mice lacking AT(1A) receptors for ANG II have a defect in urinary concentration manifested by an inability to increase urinary osmolality to levels seen in controls after thirsting. This defect results in extreme serum hypertonicity during water deprivation. In the basal state, plasma vasopressin levels are similar in wild-type controls and Agtr1a -/- mice. Plasma vasopressin levels increase normally in the AT(1A) receptor-deficient mice after 24 h of water deprivation, suggesting that the defect in urine concentration is intrinsic to the kidney. Using magnetic resonance microscopy, we find that the absence of AT(1A) receptors is associated with a modest reduction in the distance from the kidney surface to the tip of the papilla. However, this structural abnormality seems to play little role in the urinary concentrating defect in Agtr1a -/- mice since the impairment is largely reproduced in wild-type mice by treatment with an AT(1)-receptor antagonist. These studies demonstrate a critical role for the AT(1A) receptor in maintaining inner medullary structures in the kidney and in regulating renal water excretion.  (+info)

Vasopressin is the primary hormone regulating urine-concentrating ability. Vasopressin phosphorylates the UT-A1 urea transporter in rat inner medullary collecting ducts (IMCDs). To assess the effect of UT-A1 phosphorylation at S486, we developed a phospho-specific antibody to S486-UT-A1 using an 11 amino acid peptide antigen starting from amino acid 482 that bracketed S486 in roughly the center of the sequence. We also developed two stably transfected mIMCD3 cell lines: one expressing wild-type UT-A1 and one expressing a mutated form of UT-A1, S486A/S499A, that is unresponsive to protein kinase A. Forskolin stimulates urea flux in the wild-type UT-A1-mIMCD3 cells but not in the S486A/S499A-UT-A1-mIMCD3 cells. The phospho-S486-UT-A1 antibody identified UT-A1 protein in the wild-type UT-A1-mIMCD3 cells but not in the S486A/S499A-UT-A1-mIMCD3 cells. In rat IMCDs, forskolin increased the abundance of phospho-S486-UT-A1 (measured using the phospho-S486 antibody) and of total UT-A1 phosphorylation ...
Urea transporter 1 or UT-B1 (Solute carrier family 14 member 1; Urea transporter of the erythrocyte) (Bagnasco 2006). A phenylphthalazine compound, PU1424, is a potent UT-B inhibitor, inhibiting human and mouse UT-B-mediated urea transport with IC50 values of 0.02 and 0.69 mumol/L, respectively, and exerted 100% UT-B inhibition at high concentrations (Ran et al. 2016). UT-B catalyzes transmembrane water transport which can be ued as a reporter system (Schilling et al. 2016). Knocking out both UT1 and UT2 increases urine output 3.5-fold and lowers urine osmolarity (Jiang et al. 2016). The double knockout also lowered blood pressure and promoted maturation of the male reproductive system. Thus, functional deficiency of all UTs causes a urea-selective urine-concentrating defect with few physiological abnormalities in extrarenal organs (Jiang et al. 2016 ...
At the University of Wisconsin-Madison Relative medullary thickness (RMT) is the most commonly used morphological indicator of urine concentrating ability of mammalian kidneys. I tested the assumed positive relationship of RMT to habitat aridity in rodents, using both conventional and phylogenetically informed analysis of covariance (ANCOVA with body mass as covariate). Body mass, mass-corrected kidney mass, mass-corrected RMT, mass-corrected maximum urine concentration, and habitat (scored on a scale of 1 to 4 to indicate increasing aridity) all showed significant phylogenetic signal. Mass-corrected RMT and maximum urine concentration showed a highly significant positive correlation (N = 38 species). Mass-corrected RMT varied significantly among habitats (N = 144), and a phylogenetic (but not a conventional) analysis indicated that body mass-corrected kidney mass (N = 104) was positively related to habitat ...

When I got home, it should hold urine before testing. Two or three hours of restraint will suffice: rent a movie or preparing food, do whatever you occupy your time to concentrate urine in your body and thus make more effective reading. It is best to perform the test in the morning , but you can do it anytime of the day (the first urine of the day you from having to wait concentration). Try to drink water normally, instead of consuming it in abundance only to produce urine, as this lightens the fluid and prevents a correct reading. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Urine-concentrating mechanism in the inner medulla. T2 - Function of the thin limbs of the loops of henle. AU - Dantzler, William H.. AU - Layton, Anita T.. AU - Layton, Harold E.. AU - Pannabecker, Thomas L.. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - The ability of mammals to produce urine hyperosmotic to plasma requires the generation of a gradient of increasing osmolality along the medulla from the corticomedullary junction to the papilla tip. Countercurrent multiplication apparently establishes this gradient in the outer medulla, where there is substantial transepithelial reabsorption of NaCl from the water-impermeable thick ascending limbs of the loops of Henle. However, this process does not establish the much steeper osmotic gradient in the inner medulla, where there are no thick ascending limbs of the loops of Henle and the water-impermeable ascending thin limbs lack active transepithelial transport of NaCl or any other solute. The mechanism generating the osmotic gradient in the inner ...
INTERNET-DRAFT DTLS as a Transport Layer for RADIUS 9 October 2013 The above paragraph can be rephrased more generically. A session MUST be deleted when non-RADIUS traffic is received over it. This specification is for RADIUS, and there is no reason to allow non- RADIUS traffic over a RADIUS/DTLS connection. A session MUST be deleted when RADIUS traffic fails to pass security checks. There is no reason to permit insecure networks. A session SHOULD NOT be deleted when a well-formed, but unexpected RADIUS packet is received over it. Future specifications may extend RADIUS/DTLS, and we do not want to forbid those specifications. Once a DTLS session is established, a RADIUS/DTLS server SHOULD use DTLS Heartbeats [RFC6520] to determine connectivity between the two servers. A server SHOULD also use watchdog packets from the client to determine that the connection is still active. As UDP does not guarantee delivery of messages, RADIUS/DTLS servers which do not implement an application-layer watchdog ...
In mammals, there are two types of urea transporters (UTs), UT-A and UT-B. The UT-A transporter is mainly expressed in kidney epithelial cells; while UT-B demonstrates a broader distribution in kidney, heart, brain, testis, urinary tract and other tissues. Over the past few years, multiple UT knockout mouse models have been generated enabling us to explore the physiological roles of the different UTs. In the kidney, deletion of UTA1/A3 results in polyuria and a severe urine concentrating defect, indicating that intrarenal recycling of urea plays a crucial role in the overall capacity to concentrate urine. Since UT-B has a wide distribution, multiple phenotypic abnormalities were found in UT-B null mice, such as defective urine concentration, heart block with aging, depression-like behavior and earlier male sexual maturation. This review summarizes the new insights of urea transporter functions in different organs from UT knockout mice. Finally, we take a glance at the pharmacological prospect of UTs.
Mountain beavers make extensive, shallow burrow and tunnel systems in the ground.they are generally solitary ( except during breeding and when the female is raising her young.) Most of their time is spent on or below ground; however, they will also climb trees and swim. Mountain beavers are active throughout the year. Most activity occurs at night but they will be active throughout the day. Periods of activity tend to alternate with periods of rest. Mountain beavers have archaic kidneys and are not able to concentrate urine. They also are unable to sweat or pant so they require a cool regime and water available at all times.. ...

Aldose reductase (ALR2) is thought to be involved in the pathogenesis of various diseases associated with diabetes mellitus, such as cataract, retinopathy, neuropathy, and nephropathy. However, its physiological functions are not well understood. We developed mice deficient in this enzyme and found that they had no apparent developmental or reproductive abnormality except that they drank and urinated significantly more than their wild-type littermates. These ALR2-deficient mice exhibited a partially defective urine-concentrating ability, having a phenotype resembling that of nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.
Urine osmolality is used to measure the number of dissolved particles per unit of water in the urine. As a measure of urine concentration, it is more accurate than specific gravity.

Developments in spectroscopic analysis and routine availability of X-ray crystallography have simplified structural elucidation of natural compounds. However, isolating bioactive components of interest from crude extracts of either plants or animals has always been challenging for two reasons: these extracts contain hundreds of compounds with a range of polarities, and the bioactivity of the compound of interest should be maintained throughout the purification process. This is where countercurrent chromatography (CCC) is helpful.

Urine density has long been considered as a practical surrogate marker of urine osmolality. It has even been proposed that simple equations be used in clinical practice to obtain Uosm directly from UD [8-11], whereas a website offers such calculations online [12]. In the present study, we challenged the concept that UD is a reliable marker of urine osmolality. For better accuracy, UD measurements were made utilizing a refractometer, instead of the semi-quantitative dipstick method more commonly employed. Even so, the correlation obtained between UD and Uosm, though statistically significant, was relatively weak (r = 0.462). A closer examination casts serious doubts about the clinical usefulness of UD. If an UD of 1.020 kg/L or higher were regarded as a test to detect individuals with an Uosm of at least 600 mOsm/kg [8-10], the sensitivity of such a test would be only 36%, whereas its specificity would be 81%. In other words, 64% of the subjects with concentrated urines would be missed by such ...
Whether or not this statement is correct will depend on how dark the urine is, because the depth of color in urine will vary inversely with the urinary volume. Although the volume varies greatly among individuals, in our student laboratory (see above, under Other Data Since 8 × 8) the mean value was 1,520 ml/24 h (Table 3), with a mean urine osmolality of 590 mosmol/kgH2O. Both values are those generally cited as being normal, namely, 1,500 ml/24 h and 600 mosmol/kgH2O, respectively (73, 92). At a urine osmolality ∼600 mosmol/kgH2O, the concentration of solutes in the urine is such that the urine has a moderately yellow color, which might be interpreted as dark, especially when contrasted against pale yellow or clear, which is specified in most of the lay literature (26). Yet, at the above-cited normal urinary volume and osmolality, the plasma osmolality will be well within the normal range and nowhere near the values of 300 mosmol/kgH2O and higher, which are seen in meaningful ...
Diabetes insipidus (DI) is a disease characterized by excretion of large amounts of severely diluted urine, which cannot be reduced when fluid intake is reduced. It denotes inability of the kidney to concentrate urine. DI is caused by a deficiency of antidiuretic hormone, or by an insensitivity of the kidneys to that hormone.
In a study published in Lancet, 200 men with BPH took 20 mg of beta-sitosterol or placebo three times a day for six months. At the end of six months, the researchers observed an increase in maximum urine flow rate from a baseline of 9.9 mL/second to 15.2 mL/second, as well as a decrease in mean residual urinary volume from 65.8 mL at baseline to 30.4 mL. No changes were reported in men who had taken placebo. (Berges 1995). After unblinding the 6 month trial from the previous Berges study (1995), men in both the beta-sitosterol and placebo groups were given the option of staying on the trial for an additional 12 months while taking beta-sitosterol. There were 117 men total who were taking 20 mg of beta-sitosterol three times a day. In a follow-up study that evaluated durability of response to beta-sitosterol, the beneficial effects for beta-sitosterol were found to be maintained during an additional 18 months of observation. (Berges 2000). In 1997, there was a report of a six-month randomized, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Voltage-gated divalent currents in descending vasa recta pericytes. AU - Zhang, Zhong. AU - Lin, Hai. AU - Cao, Chunhua. AU - Khurana, Sandeep. AU - Pallone, Thomas L.. PY - 2010/10/1. Y1 - 2010/10/1. N2 - Multiple voltage-gated Ca2+ channel (CaV) subtypes have been reported to participate in control of the juxtamedullary glomerular arterioles of the kidney. Using the patch-clamp technique, we examined whole cell CaV currents of pericytes that contract descending vasa recta (DVR). The dihydropyridine CaV agonist FPL64176 (FPL) stimulated inward Ca2+ and Ba2+ currents that activated with threshold depolarizations to -40 mV and maximized between -20 and -10 mV. These currents were blocked by nifedipine (1 μM) and Ni2+ (100 and 1,000 μM), exhibited slow inactivation, and conducted Ba2+ , Ca 2+ at a ratio of 2.3:1, consistent with long-lasting L-type CaV. In FPL, with 1 mM Ca2+ as charge carrier, Boltzmann fits yielded half-maximal activation potential (V1/2) and slope factors of ...
Ultimately, all trauma leads to decreased organ perfusion, cellular ischemia, and a cascade of edema and inflammation. Once begun, inflammation becomes a disease process independent of its origin, and can lead to multiple organ failure and death even after a patient has been completely resuscitated.. The CNS response to trauma is predominantly neuroendocrine in nature, and acts to preserve the CNS, heart, and kidneys. It is enacted primarily by the kidneys and adrenal glands, which collectively produce renin, angiotensin, aldosterone, cortisol, erythropoietin, and catecholamines. The kidney is generally able to maintain GFR via vasoconstriction but loses its ability to concentrate urine (and preserve volume). In most patients, the heart is well-preserved until the late stages of shock, however in elderly patients (with a more fixed stroke volume) or those with cardiac disease, cardiac function may not be responsive to fluid resuscitation and decompensation may occur much earlier [Dark PM et al. ...
Have you ever seen a cat pant? Hopefully not, because they arent supposed to. We all know that dogs use panting to dissipate heat, while humans sweat. Aside from a negligible number of sweat glands in the paws, cats do neither! Evolved from desert-dwelling creatures, cats have extremely efficient kidneys that can concentrate urine to a very high degree, meaning they can survive longer than other mammals with less water without becoming dehydrated. I watch my dark-coated cat Penelope seek out blocks of sunlight all the time … like many cats, she thinks The hotter, the better! Meanwhile my dog is laying on the coldest spot of floor he can find ...
Hyaluronan (HA) is a negatively charged extracellular matrix (ECM) component with water-attracting properties. It is the dominating ECM component in the renal medullary interstitium, where the amount changes in relation to hydration status: it increases during hydration and decreases during dehydration. It has, therefore, been suggested that HA participates in the regulation of renal fluid handling by changing the permeability properties of the interstitial space. This thesis investigates potential mechanisms for such a role in renal fluid regulation.. The results demonstrate that the high renal HA content of late nephrogenesis decreases during the completion of kidney development in the rat, which takes place in the neonatal period. The heterogenous distribution of HA is mainly established during the first three weeks after birth. On day 21, the HA content is similar to that in the adult rat. The process is dependent on normal Ang II function. It primarily involves a reduction of HA synthase 2 ...

The commonly accepted manifestations of renal insufficiency are usually not recognized in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) until the fourth decade of life (1). However, many ADPKD patients with GFRs indistinguishable from normal are unable to increase the osmolality of urine above 800 mosm/kg H2O after overnight dehydration or after the parenteral administration of supplementary vasopressin. This concentrating defect can be detected in some young children and young adults decades before the GFR noticeably declines, indicating that parenchymal malfunction begins very early in the course of renal cystic disease (2). In an excellent study reported in this issue of CJASN, Zittema et al. (3) confirm that maximal urine concentration capacity is lost in ADPKD patients compared with normal controls. Still at issue is the mechanism(s) by which ADPKD impairs the maximal concentration of the urine.. The baseline urine volumes, osmolar excretion rates, and plasma arginine ...
To test the hypothesis that the abundance of the apical urea transporter of the inner medullary collecting duct (IMCD) is regulated in vivo by factors associated with altered water balance, immunoblots of rat inner medullary membrane fractions were probed with rabbit polyclonal antibodies against the renal urea transporter (RUT) gene product. In inner medullas of Brattleboro rats, which manifest severe chronic water diuresis, a 117-kD band was seen, in addition to the previously described 97-kD band. These two bands were detectable by antibodies directed against two different regions of the RUT sequence. When Brattleboro rats were treated with a 5-d infusion of arginine vasopressin (AVP) by osmotic minipump, the 117-kD band was markedly diminished, whereas the 97-kD band was unchanged. Simultaneous infusion of the diuretic agent furosemide prevented the AVP-induced decrease in the 117-kD band. In AVP-infused Sprague Dawley rats, the 117-kD band was barely perceptible. However, when AVP-treated ...
Definition of water deprivation in the Financial Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is water deprivation? Meaning of water deprivation as a finance term. What does water deprivation mean in finance?
Water is the predominant chemical component of living organisms. Its unique physical properties, which include the ability to solvate a wide range of organic and inorganic molecules, derive from waters dipolar structure and exceptional capacity for forming hydrogen bonds. The manner in which water interacts with a solvated biomolecule influences the structure both of the biomolecule and of water itself. An excellent nucleophile, water is a reactant or product in many metabolic reactions. Regulation of water balance depends upon hypothalamic mechanisms that control thirst, on antidiuretic hormone (ADH), on retention or excretion of water by the kidneys, and on evaporative loss. Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, which involves the inability to concentrate urine or adjust to subtle changes in extracellular fluid osmolarity, results from the unresponsiveness of renal tubular osmoreceptors to ADH. ...
Sure, this bicycle is somewhat less desireable, but the locking technique is still baffling. This rider is using a two-part security system consisting of a u-lock and a cable which a determined rodent could probably gnaw through in a matter of minutes. The most substantial component of the system (the u-lock) is for some reason being employed to secure only the wheel, while the rest of the bike is secured by the cable. (In fairness to the owner, though, I suppose it is possible that the front wheel is worth more than the rest of the bike, so that might explain it. But he still might as well have locked the frame too.) Also, the helmet is right at dog-groin level for maximum urine exposure.. I cant explain why people are unable to lock their bikes properly. All I can do is point these things out when I see them in the hope that others may learn. And the two lessons to be learned from these bikes are:. Lock Up Anything That Can Be Removed. Again, thats Lock Up Anything That Can Be Removed, not ...

Mathematical modeling techniques have been useful in providing insights into biological systems, including the kidney. This article considers some of the mathematical models that concern urea transport in the kidney. Modeling simulations have been conducted to investigate, in the context of urea cycling and urine concentration, the effects of hypothetical active urea secretion into pars recta. Simulation results suggest that active urea secretion induces a urea-selective improvement in urine concentrating ability. Mathematical models have also been built to study the implications of the highly structured organization of tubules and vessels in the renal medulla on urea sequestration and cycling. The goal of this article is to show how physiological problems can be formulated and studied mathematically, and how such models may provide insights into renal functions ...
The goal of this study was to investigate the reciprocal interactions among oxygen (O2), nitric oxide (NO), and superoxide (O2 (-)) and their effects on medullary oxygenation and urinary output. To accomplish that goal, we developed a detailed mathematical model of solute transport in the renal medulla of the rat kidney. The model represents the radial organization of the renal tubules and vessels, which centers around the vascular bundles in the outer medulla and around clusters of collecting ducts in the inner medulla. Model simulations yield significant radial gradients in interstitial fluid oxygen tension (Po2) and NO and O2 (-) concentration in the OM and upper IM. In the deep inner medulla, interstitial fluid concentrations become much more homogeneous, as the radial organization of tubules and vessels is not distinguishable. The model further predicts that due to the nonlinear interactions among O2, NO, and O2 (-), the effects of NO and O2 (-) on sodium transport, osmolality, and ...

Počítačové programy pro genetické programování mohou být napsány v nejrůznějších programovacích jazycích. V nejstarších implementacích byly instrukce programu a datové hodnoty organizovány ve stromových strukturách, což upřednostňovalo jazyky, které přirozeně zahrnují tyto struktury (příkladem je Kozou propagovaný Lisp). Později byly navrženy a úspěšně realizovány také jiné typy implementace, jako např. s lineární reprezentací jedinců, která více vyhovuje klasickým imperativním jazykům [Banzhaf a kol. (1997)]. Např. komerční software Discipulus používá právě lineární genetické programování kombinované s použitím strojového kódu pro vyšší rychlost. Metodami genetického programování bylo ke konci roku 2003 již ve 36 různých složitých úlohách dosaženo výsledků přinejmenším srovnatelných s lidskými[1].
