Myocardial uptake of digoxin in chronically digitalized dogs. (1/15898)

1 The time course of myocardial uptake of digoxin, increase in contractility and changes in myocardial potassium concentration was studied for 90 min following an intravenous digoxin dose to long-term digitalized dogs. 2 Nineteen dogs were investigated by the use of a biopsy technique which allowed sampling before and after administration of digoxin. 3 Ten minutes after administration of digoxin the myocardial concentration increased from 60 to 306 nmol/kg tissue, the myocardial concentration of digoxin was significantly lower (250 nmol/kg tissue) after 30 min and then increased again. 4 The transmural myocardial distribution of digoxin was uniform before and 90 min after administration of digoxin in long-term digitalized dogs but at 10 min after administration, both the subepicardial and the subendocardial concentration of digoxin were significantly lower than that of the mesocardial layer. 5 During the first 10 min the dp/dtmax increased to 135% of the control level. The increase remained unchanged during the rest of the study. 6 Myocardial potassium decreased throughout the study. 7 The M-configuration of the myocardial uptake curve and the non-uniformity of myocardial distribution of digoxin observed at 10 min after administrating digoxin to long-term digitalized dogs indicate that the distribution of myocardial blood flow may be changed during chronic digitalization.  (+info)

Automatic activity in depolarized guinea pig ventricular myocardium. Characteristics and mechanisms. (2/15898)

Membrane potential was changed uniformly in segments, 0.7-1.0 mm long, of guinea pig papillary muscles excised from the right ventricle by using extracellular polarizing current pulses applied across two electrically insulated cf preparations superfused with Tyrode's solution at maximum diastolic membrane potentials ranging from-35.2+/-7.5 (threshold) to +4.0+/-9.2 mV. The average maximum dV/dt of RAD ranged from 17.1 to 18.0 V/sec within a membrane potential range of -40 to +20 mV. Raising extracellular Ca2+ concentration [Ca2+]0 from 1.8 to 6.8 mM, or application of isoproterenol (10(-6)g/ml) enhanced the rate of RAD, but lowering [Ca2+]0 to 0.4 mM or exposure to MnCl2 (6 mM) abolished RAD. RAD were enhanced by lowering extracellular K+ concentration [K+]0 from 5.4 to 1.5 mM. RAD were suppressed in 40% of fibers by raising [K+]0 to 15.4 mM, and in all fibers by raising [K+]0 to 40.4 mM. This suppression was due to increased [K+]0 and not to K-induced depolarization because it persisted when membrane potential was held by means of a conditioning hyperpolarizing puled gradually after maximum repolarization. These observations suggest that the development of RAD in depolarized myocardium is associated with a time-dependent decrease in outward current (probably K current) and with increase in the background inward current, presumably flowing through the slow cha-nel carrying Ca or Na ions, or both.  (+info)

Acute and chronic dose-response relationships for angiotensin, aldosterone, and arterial pressure at varying levels of sodium intake. (3/15898)

We examined the acute and chronic dose-response relationships between intravenously infused angiotensin II (A II) and the resulting changes in arterial pressure and plasma aldosterone concentration at varying levels of sodium intake. Sequential analysis of plasma aldosterone at each A II infusion rate resulted in an acute dose-related increase in plasma aldosterone which was markedly attenuated after the first 24 hours of infusion, the final level being directly related to the dose of A II and inversely related to sodium intake. A II infused at 5,15, and 23 ng/kg per min was associated with an initial increase (2nd to 8th hour) in plasma aldosterone to 2,6, and 9 times control values, respectively, in dogs receiving 40 mEq Na+/day. But, after the 1st day, aldosterone averaged only 1, 1.7, and 3 times control values for the next 2 weeks at the same rates of A II infusion. Dogs receiving 120 mEq Na+/day during A II infusion exhibited only a transient increase in plasma aldosterone during the 1st day. Sustained hypertension developed over a period of a week at all doses of A II at normal and high sodium intake, but did not occur at any dose of A II in sodium-depleted dogs. Increasing sodium intake from 40 to 120 mEq/day resulted in higher levels of hypertension, 125% compared to 140% of ocntrol values for dogs infused with A II, 5.0 ng/kg per min. We conclude that primary angiotensin-induced hypertension need not be associated with increased levels of plasma aldosterone, which appears to remain elevated only with amounts of A II greater than those required to sustain a significant degree of hypertension.  (+info)

The optically determined size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool correlates with the quantal content at the neuromuscular junction of Drosophila larvae. (4/15898)

According to the current theory of synaptic transmission, the amplitude of evoked synaptic potentials correlates with the number of synaptic vesicles released at the presynaptic terminals. Synaptic vesicles in presynaptic boutons constitute two distinct pools, namely, exo/endo cycling and reserve pools (). We defined the vesicles that were endocytosed and exocytosed during high K+ stimulation as the exo/endo cycling vesicle pool. To determine the role of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool in synaptic transmission, we estimated the quantal content electrophysiologically, whereas the pool size was determined optically using fluorescent dye FM1-43. We then manipulated the size of the pool with following treatments. First, to change the state of boutons of nerve terminals, motoneuronal axons were severed. With this treatment, the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool decreased together with the quantal content. Second, we promoted the FM1-43 uptake using cyclosporin A, which inhibits calcineurin activities and enhances endocytosis. Cyclosporin A increased the total uptake of FM1-43, but neither the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool nor the quantal content changed. Third, we increased the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool by forskolin, which enhances synaptic transmission. The forskolin treatment increased both the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool and the quantal content. Thus, we found that the quantal content was closely correlated with the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool but not necessarily with the total uptake of FM1-43 fluorescence by boutons. The results suggest that vesicles in the exo/endo cycling pool primarily participate in evoked exocytosis of vesicles.  (+info)

Ionic currents underlying spontaneous action potentials in isolated cerebellar Purkinje neurons. (5/15898)

Acutely dissociated cell bodies of mouse Purkinje neurons spontaneously fired action potentials at approximately 50 Hz (25 degrees C). To directly measure the ionic currents underlying spontaneous activity, we voltage-clamped the cells using prerecorded spontaneous action potentials (spike trains) as voltage commands and used ionic substitution and selective blockers to isolate individual currents. The largest current flowing during the interspike interval was tetrodotoxin-sensitive sodium current (approximately -50 pA between -65 and -60 mV). Although the neurons had large voltage-dependent calcium currents, the net current blocked by cobalt substitution for calcium was outward at all times during spike trains. Thus, the electrical effect of calcium current is apparently dominated by rapidly activated calcium-dependent potassium currents. Under current clamp, all cells continued firing spontaneously (though approximately 30% more slowly) after block of T-type calcium current by mibefradil, and most cells continued to fire after block of all calcium current by cobalt substitution. Although the neurons possessed hyperpolarization-activated cation current (Ih), little current flowed during spike trains, and block by 1 mM cesium had no effect on firing frequency. The outward potassium currents underlying the repolarization of the spikes were completely blocked by 1 mM TEA. These currents deactivated quickly (<1 msec) after each spike. We conclude that the spontaneous firing of Purkinje neuron cell bodies depends mainly on tetrodotoxin-sensitive sodium current flowing between spikes. The high firing rate is promoted by large potassium currents that repolarize the cell rapidly and deactivate quickly, thus preventing strong hyperpolarization and restoring a high input resistance for subsequent depolarization.  (+info)

Inducible genetic suppression of neuronal excitability. (6/15898)

Graded, reversible suppression of neuronal excitability represents a logical goal of therapy for epilepsy and intractable pain. To achieve such suppression, we have developed the means to transfer "electrical silencing" genes into neurons with sensitive control of transgene expression. An ecdysone-inducible promoter drives the expression of inwardly rectifying potassium channels in polycistronic adenoviral vectors. Infection of superior cervical ganglion neurons did not affect normal electrical activity but suppressed excitability after the induction of gene expression. These experiments demonstrate the feasibility of controlled ion channel expression after somatic gene transfer into neurons and serve as the prototype for a novel generalizable approach to modulate excitability.  (+info)

Identification of the Kv2.1 K+ channel as a major component of the delayed rectifier K+ current in rat hippocampal neurons. (7/15898)

Molecular cloning studies have revealed the existence of a large family of voltage-gated K+ channel genes expressed in mammalian brain. This molecular diversity underlies the vast repertoire of neuronal K+ channels that regulate action potential conduction and neurotransmitter release and that are essential to the control of neuronal excitability. However, the specific contribution of individual K+ channel gene products to these neuronal K+ currents is poorly understood. We have shown previously, using an antibody, "KC, " specific for the Kv2.1 K+ channel alpha-subunit, the high-level expression of Kv2.1 protein in hippocampal neurons in situ and in culture. Here we show that KC is a potent blocker of K+ currents expressed in cells transfected with the Kv2.1 cDNA, but not of currents expressed in cells transfected with other highly related K+ channel alpha-subunit cDNAs. KC also blocks the majority of the slowly inactivating outward current in cultured hippocampal neurons, although antibodies to two other K+ channel alpha-subunits known to be expressed in these cells did not exhibit blocking effects. In all cases the blocking effects of KC were eliminated by previous incubation with a recombinant fusion protein containing the KC antigenic sequence. Together these studies show that Kv2.1, which is expressed at high levels in most mammalian central neurons, is a major contributor to the delayed rectifier K+ current in hippocampal neurons and that the KC antibody is a powerful tool for the elucidation of the role of the Kv2.1 K+ channel in regulating neuronal excitability.  (+info)

Treating the syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion with isotonic saline. (8/15898)

It has been widely accepted that there is little use for saline treatment in the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of ADH (SIADH). However, having observed that most SIADH patients increased their plasma sodium (PNa) after 2 l isotonic saline over 24 h, we investigated whether urine osmolality or the sum of urinary sodium and potassium (UNa + K) predicted this response, in 17 consecutive patients with chronic SIADH. The initial measure of urinary sodium plus potassium (UNa + K t0) was weakly correlated to the change in PNa (DPNa) after infusion (r = -0.51; p < 0.05), while initial urine osmolality (UOSM t0) was a much better predictor (y = -0.024x + 12.90; r = -0.81; p < 0.001). The lack of predictive value for UNa + K t0 was probably because urine electrolyte concentrations were not maximal for the corresponding initial UOSM. This reflects differences in salt intake between the patients. The theoretical maximal value for UNa + K t0 (th max UNa + K t0) for a given USOM t0, was as good a predictor as UOSM t0 (th max UNa + K vs. DPNa: r = -0.81; p < 0.001). A theoretical model describing the effect of 2 l isotonic saline infusion on DPNa as a function of UNa + K, produced values comparable to those observed in our patients. Only 6/17 patients, those with UOSM > 530 mOsm/kg, had their hyponatraemia aggravated by 2 l isotonic saline. Many SIADH patients have lower UOSM; in most such patients, 2 l of isotonic saline will improve PNa.  (+info)

The passive K influx in low K(LK) red blood cells of sheep saturates with increasing external K concentration, indicating that this mode of transport is mediated by membrane-associated sites. The passive K influx, iMLK, is inhibited by external Na. Isoimmune anti-L serum, known to stimulate active K transport in LK sheep red cells, inhibits iMLK about twofold. iMLK is affected by changes in intracellular K concentration, [K]i, in a complex fashion: increasing [K]i from near zero stimulates iMLK, while further increases in [K]i, above 3 mmol/liter cells, inhibit iMLK. The passive K influx is not mediated by K-K exchange diffusion. The effects of anti-L antibody and [K]i on passive cation transport are specific for K: neither factor affects passive Na transport. The common characteristics of passive and active K influx suggest that iMLK is mediated by inactive Na-K pump sites, and that the inability to translocate Na characterizes the inactive pumps. Anti-L antibody stimulates the K pump in ...

A manifestation of changing dietary loads over time is to regulate the distribution of ROMK channels between the apical membrane and intracellular storage, that is, high-potassium diets lead to insertion of apical channels and therefore higher potassium secretion. In contrast, during periods of prolonged low potassium ingestion, there are few ROMK channels in the apical membrane. Yet another adaptation to prolonged periods of low potassium ingestion is an increase in H-K-ATPase activity in intercalated cells, resulting in even more efficient reabsorption of filtered potassium.

Abnormalities in potassium levels can lead to several clinical difficulties in trauma patients admitted to the ICU. However, the significance of potassium abnormalities soon after admission in trauma patients has not yet been clearly delineated. The objective of this study was to describe the plasma potassium abnormalities in trauma patients on admission and to examine the clinical outcomes associated with these abnormalities. We performed a retrospective observational study of plasma potassium levels in trauma patients admitted to the Fukuyama City Hospital between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2013. Five hundred twenty consecutive trauma patients were included and categorized into six groups according to their plasma potassium level on admission (|3.0, 3.0-|3.5, 3.5-|4.0, 4.0-|4.5, 4.5-|5.0, and ≥5.0 mEq/L). After adjusting for covariates, including age, gender, the Revised Trauma Score, and the Injury Severity Score, logistic regression analysis was used to examine the association between plasma
Flourish Potassium™ contains 50,000 mg/L of potassium suitable for the natural planted aquarium. Potassium is one of several elements that are vitally important to maintaining a vigorous level of growth in a planted aquarium. Potassium can become depleted in a rapidly growing system or when the source water has a low mineral content. In these cases potassium could become the limiting factor to growth. Use Flourish Potassium™ to prevent potassium depletion (signs of which include yellowing in older leaves) and maintain the highest level of growth.. The most easily obtained sources of potassium are potassium nitrate and potassium phosphate. Both of these sources add to either nitrogen or phosphorus as well as potassium, making it virtually impossible to target a specific NPK ratio. Flourish Potassium™ is derived from potassium sulfate, allowing the user to adjust potassium levels without affecting nitrogen or phosphorus.. ...
WNK1--a serine/threonine kinase involved in electrolyte homeostasis and blood pressure (BP) control--is an excellent candidate gene for essential hypertension (EH). We and others have previously reported association between WNK1 and BP variation. Using tag SNPs (tSNPs) that capture 100% of common WNK1 variation in HapMap, we aimed to replicate our findings with BP and to test for association with phenotypes relating to WNK1 function in the British Genetics of Hypertension (BRIGHT) study case-control resource (1700 hypertensive cases and 1700 normotensive controls). We found multiple variants to be associated with systolic blood pressure, SBP (7/28 tSNPs min-p = 0.0005), diastolic blood pressure, DBP (7/28 tSNPs min-p = 0.002) and 24 hour urinary potassium excretion (10/28 tSNPs min-p = 0.0004). Associations with SBP and urine potassium remained significant after correction for multiple testing (p = 0.02 and p = 0.01 respectively).

Lower potassium levels in the blood may help explain why African-Americans are twice as likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes as whites, according to a new study by Johns Hopkins researchers.. The findings, if confirmed, suggest that part of diabetes prevention may someday prove as easy as taking a cheap potassium supplement.. "This research doesnt mean people should run out and start taking potassium supplements," says Hsin-Chieh "Jessica" Yeh, Ph.D., an assistant professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an author of the study, which appears in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. "But we now know lower serum potassium is an independent risk factor for diabetes and that African-Americans have, on average, lower potassium levels than whites. What remains to be seen is if increasing potassium levels through diet or supplementation can prevent the most common form of ...

... chloride, KCl, forms colorless cubic crystals, resembling those of sodium chloride. Large deposits of potassium chloride are found at Stassfurt, Germany and near Carlsbad, New Mexico. It is also obtained from the Searles Lake in the Mojave Desert of California. Potassium hydroxide, KOH, is a strongly alkaline substance. Potassium hydrogen tartrate (KHC4H4O6), called cream of tartar, is a constituent of grape juice. It is used in making baking powder. The principal use of potassium is as a fertilizer. Plant fluids contain large amounts of potassium ion which has been concentrated from the soil. Potassium sulfate and other salts of potassium are used to replace the soil potassium if it becomes depleted. ...

WHAT DOES POTASSIUM DO FOR US?. Sodium and potassium have similar chemical properties but their functions are very different. Blood plasma is mostly made up of sodium cations and cell fluid is made up mostly of potassium cations. Potassium influences the pressure (osmotic balance) of the fluids surrounding the cells of our bodies (the interstitial fluids). This is done with the action of something called the Na+/K+ ATPase pump (the sodium/potassium adenosine triphosphatase pump). This is an ion pump and it maintains 3 sodium ions outside of a cell for every 2 potassium ions inside a cell keeping the balance of potassium and sodium ions at its correct levels creating what is called the membrane potential. tube.com/watch?v=awz6lIss3hQ&feature=related. The cell membrane potential is critical for muscle contractions, proper functioning of our hearts and for nerve impulse transmissions.. The term electrolyte applies to a substance that separates into ions or charged particles of which potassium is ...
Potassium is a mineral found in varying amounts in almost all foods. Vegetables, especially green leafy varieties, are generally our richest sources of potassium.. We list three excellent sources of potassium, 16 as very good sources, and 39 as good sources by our Nutrient Rating System. In other words, over half of our WHFoods provide you with significant amounts of potassium! In fact, all of our WHFoods contain at least some small but measurable amount of this mineral.. Along with sodium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium, potassium is an electrolyte, meaning that it helps to conduct electrical charges in the body. Like all the other electrolytes, our bodies have evolved elaborate systems to control blood levels in a narrow range. This is good news since normal levels of potassium are absolutely critical to life-if potassium levels get too high or too low, the heart and nervous system completely shut down. Luckily, most of us are able to obtain enough potassium from foods to meet our most basic ...

Because it is a primary electrolyte, potassium is known as a great alkalizer, important in pH and water balance. Potassium is easily absorbed, but at least 90% of it is excreted through the kidneys and bowels. Potassium is vital to the elimination of wastes in the body.Potassium is a natural diuretic, ...
EN] Potassium homeostasis is crucial for living cells. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the uptake of potassium is driven by the electrochemical gradient generated by the Pma1 H +-ATPase, and this process represents a major consumer of the gradient. We considered that any mutation resulting in an alteration of the electrochemical gradient could give rise to anomalous sensitivity to any cationic drug independently of its toxicity mechanism. Here, we describe a genomewide screen for mutants that present altered tolerance to hygromycin B, spermine, and tetramethylammonium. Two hundred twenty-six mutant strains displayed altered tolerance to all three drugs (202 hypersensitive and 24 hypertolerant), and more than 50% presented a strong or moderate growth defect at a limiting potassium concentration (1 mM). Functional groups such as protein kinases and phosphatases, intracellular trafficking, transcription, or cell cycle and DNA processing were enriched. Essentially, our screen has identified a ...
In this recent study the researchers discovered a change in a potassium channel that is a major cause of secondary hypertension. Remember that normally an increase in aldosterone leads to an increase in sodium reabsorption in the kidney and a rise in blood pressure. Normally when there is an increase in potassium outside the cell, potassium will move into the cell.. In certain adrenal gland cells the resulting increase in membrane polarization (the difference in electrical charges across the membrane) leads to less aldosterone secretion. The lowering of aldosterone leads to less sodium reabsorption in the kidney, and thus lower blood pressure. In some people blood pressure is high and does not come down, because they have a gene that prevents this normal sequence.. In this particular study, a gene variant was found that affected part of a potassium channel. The change meant that the channel no longer allowed only potassium to pass. The channel allowed sodium to pass through the potassium channel ...

The effectiveness of verapamil, diltiazem and nifedipine in reducing potassium-induced enhancement of vascular responses to norepinephrine was studied in rabbit aorta and porcine coronary arteries. At multiple levels of external potassium concentration (4-28 mM), norepinephrine concentration-response curves were performed. Whereas the tissue was only slightly depolarized (about 5 mV) by an increase in external potassium to 20 mM, the norepinephrine response was markedly potentiated. For example, the EC50 of norepinephrine in aortic rings was reduced from 4.7 X 10(-8) M in 4 mM potassium to 4.7 X 10(-9) M in 20 mM potassium. Calcium channel blockers reduced potassium- and calcium-induced contractions, the IC50 being 6 X 10(-8) M for verapamil, 5 X 10(-7) M for diltiazem and 3 X 10(-9) M for nifedipine. These concentrations only minimally reduced norepinephrine contraction in 4 mM potassium but virtually abolished the depolarization-induced potentiation of the norepinephrine contraction. Even ...
Another way to view this is that the high Na/K ratio, provided it is within a normal range between about 2 and 10, is indicative of a person who is responding well to their environment. A lower or higher ratio indicates abnormal responses that are less healthful. The exception is if the circumstances demand a different response. This could either be one of extreme fight-or-flight (a very high Na/K ratio) or one of paralysis or fright that demands that one just stop and rest, which could cause a low Na/K ratio ...

Voltage-gated potassium channel that mediates transmembrane potassium transport in excitable membranes, primarily in the brain, but also in the pancreas and cardiovascular system. Contributes to the regulation of the action potential (AP) repolarization, duration and frequency of repetitive AP firing in neurons, muscle cells and endocrine cells and plays a role in homeostatic attenuation of electrical excitability throughout the brain. Plays also a role in the regulation of exocytosis independently of its electrical function. Forms tetrameric potassium-selective channels through which potassium ions pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient. The channel alternates between opened and closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane. Homotetrameric channels mediate a delayed-rectifier voltage-dependent outward potassium current that display rapid activation and slow inactivation in response to membrane depolarization. Can form functional homotetrameric and

We introduced a model of extracellular potassium accumulation in the periaxonal space of the myelinated nerve fibre during prolonged repetitive stimulation. The accumulation of potassium was linked to the myelin resistance, which was variable in the model. Thus, excitability of the fibre was affected by potassium not only via the depolarization block, but also through increased electrical leakage through the myelin. The model has an electrical scheme for a space-lumped fibre, which is superimposed on several concentrational compartments.. Nerve excitability is a function of myelin resistance. Therefore, making it dependent on sub-myelin potassium concentration has lead to new patterns of nerve behaviour. At high frequencies of stimulation (greater than 150 Hz for near-threshold stimulation and model parameters considered normal), the model fibre was periodically or completely blocked, depending on the frequency and amplitude of stimulation. This was not observed if the myelin resistance was ...
Perhaps the most important way to ensure strong kidney health is to keep your blood pressure under good control. As discussed above, diets high in potassium are well known to help with this.. In addition, diets rich in potassium have been associated with a reduction in kidney stone risk. This is thought to be because the naturally occurring potassium salts in plant foods help to neutralize acidity in the blood stream. This prevents leeching of calcium from the bones to buffer the acid, which in turn reduces urine calcium, preventing its deposition in the form of a stone. Please note that while diets rich in potassium can be helpful in preventing certain kidney-related problems in a healthy people with good kidney function, persons already known to have kidney problems and who are diagnosed with certain diseases of the kidney may need to carefully regulate their intake of potassium, since their kidneys might not otherwise be able to regulate the levels of potassium in their bloodstream.. ...
Molecular dynamics simulations of a bacterial potassium channel (KcsA) embedded in a phospholipid bilayer reveal significant differences in interactions of the selectivity filter with K(+) compared with Na(+) ions. K(+) ions and water molecules within the filter undergo concerted single-file motion in which they translocate between adjacent sites within the filter on a nanosecond timescale. In contrast, Na(+) ions remain bound to sites within the filter and do not exhibit translocation on a nanosecond timescale. Furthermore, entry of a K(+) ion into the filter from the extracellular mouth is observed, whereas this does not occur for a Na(+) ion. Whereas K(+) ions prefer to sit within a cage of eight oxygen atoms of the filter, Na(+) ions prefer to interact with a ring of four oxygen atoms plus two water molecules. These differences in interactions in the selectivity filter may contribute to the selectivity of KcsA for K(+) ions (in addition to the differences in dehydration energy between K(+) and Na(+)
Potassium Channels control cell membrane electric potentials by selectively allowing diffusion of K+ across the membrane.[1] K+ Channels extend across the cell membrane, a 40Å thick lipid bilayer which ions cannot cross.[2] Potassium homeostasis is crucial for nearly all living cells, but is particularly important for the correct function of neurons. Neurons produce electrical impulses known as action potentials, allow for cellular communication processes like neurotransmitter release or to initiate intercellular processes muscle contraction. At the onset of an action potential, sodium ions flood across the plasma membrane of neurons via sodium channels. The change in polarity of the plasma membrane caused by the sodium ion influx inactivates sodium channels. Potassium channels subsequently open allowing the selective diffusion of K+ ions across the plasma membrane, returning the membrane polarity to neutral. After the action potential has passed, channels recreate the high potassium ...
Potassium is a mineral electrolyte thats very important for the bodys growth and maintenance. Its crucial for water and pH balance within the body and plays a role in muscle contractions and heart and brain function.. Fortunately, most folks get enough potassium from a well-balanced diet with lots of fruits and veggies and fortified foods. Those on certain medications (like water pills) or who are following special diets (like the DASH diet for high blood pressure) may need an extra boost of potassium. If youre looking to add potassium, its suggested to do so by increasing potassium-rich foods as opposed to popping a supplement (unless directed by a registered dietitian of doctor).. Potassium-Rich ...
Epidemiologic data suggest that dietary intakes of NaCl, K+, Ca2+, and Mg2+ may all contribute to hypertension and its consequences.8,19-22 Conversely, hypertension is ameliorated by increasing K+, Ca2+, and Mg2+ or by decreasing NaCl intake.23-26 Presumably, these dietary alterations influence ionic events at the cellular level, leading to altered tissue function, but this has been difficult to determine because previous measurements of steady state cellular ion content of, eg, K+, often required cell suspension in artificial media, the use of chelating agents that distribute not only into cytosol but into other cell compartments as well, or even the disruption of cell membranes. Furthermore, focusing on single ions rather than on their mutual interaction often leads to artificial controversies in which K+, Na+, Ca2+, and Mg2+ have each been claimed as the "most" important ionic determinant of pathologic processes such as hypertension.. Our group has developed NMR spectroscopic techniques to ...

Muscular Strength: One of the most useful benefits of potassium is its role in ensuring the proper growth of muscle tissues and the proper utilization of energy released during metabolism, which adds significantly to muscular strength. The muscles, including those all-important cardiac muscles, are prone to paralysis due to a deficiency of potassium in a persons diet. Stimulating cell growth and providing the metabolic energy to do so is a vital function of potassium, and muscular health would be compromised without it. Also, without the contractions and relaxations that potassium allows muscles to perform, exercise and additional muscle training would be impossible ...

Potassium is a mineral that is found in almost every food item we eat, differing only in the amount. So, a well balanced diet, with fruits, vegetables, milk, etc in it, is all you need to maintain the proper level of potassium in the body. Though lack of potassium has not been directly linked to a disease, the mineral has been found to be of great importance in helping body perform its vital functions. However, even too much of potassium is not good for health. An average adult is required to consume 2,100 to 3,200 mg of potassium in a day. Check out the amount of potassium in various food items, mentioned below, to know whether you are getting enough potassium in your daily diet or not ...
PURPOSE: Epileptiform burst-firing can occur in hippocampal area CA1 where recurrent excitation is relatively weak and recurrent inhibition strong. Recent observations suggest that recurrent inhibition can transform into recurrent excitation because of collapse of the chloride gradient. Here we assess the role of potassium in this epileptogenic transformation. METHODS: Extracellular field potential recordings, combined with either intracellular recordings from pyramidal neurons or extracellular potassium concentration recordings, were made in vitro from isolated CA1 minislices cut from the rat hippocampus and in vivo from area CA1 in urethane-anesthetized rats. Burst responses were evoked by 5-Hz alveus stimulation. RESULTS: The 5-Hz alveus stimulation in vitro caused a transient period of burst responses that was associated with a transient increase in synaptic input in stratum oriens and a transient shift of the reversal potential of the synaptic potential. These changes were related to the transient
See related article, pp 769-776. There are multiplicities of factors that have been proffered as physiological/dietary prompts for the new onset of hypertension. Such physiological factors generally center on changes in volume homeostasis, an excess of sympathetic nervous system activity, or either relative or absolute increases in various components of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system; however, population-based screening for changes in neurohumoral and volume-related factors associated with the new onset of hypertension is rarely done in clinical practice and for the most part, when attempted, has been sparingly predictive. Alternatively, at the individual patient level, the good clinician by virtue of an oftentimes thoughtfully applied algorithmic approach to treatment and simple neurohumoral testing can in a post hoc manner uncover the pathobiologic prompt to a newly developed hypertensive state.. Dietary factors actively involved in the genesis of hypertension have, however, received ...

Serum sodium:potassium (Na:K) ratios are often reported in biochemical studies of dogs, although their value has not been assessed. The aims of this study were to identify diseases associated with a low Na:K ratio in dogs and to compare their prevalence with the prevalence in dogs from the same referral hospital with normal Na:K ratios. A total of 238 dogs with a Na:K ratio less than 27 were identified from medical records. Sample contamination with edta was suspected in 74 cases (31 per cent) and these and two cases that had been supplemented with potassium were removed from the analysis. The remaining 162 cases and 147 control dogs were divided into five categories depending on the organ system affected. Among the cases there were significantly more in the endocrine category than among the control dogs. Hypoadrenocorticism was the most single common cause of a low Na:K ratio and affected 27 (16·7 per cent) of the cases. Other clinical problems associated with low Na:K ratios included ...

If we shift our focus over to the cardiac myocyte in particular well remember that potassium and sodium are the major role players. Potassium is concentrated intracellularly and sodium is hanging out extracellularly. The good old Sodium-Potassium pump is keeping the peace, the peace being a negative resting membrane potential. The concentration gradient across this membrane plays an important role in maintaining this action potential. As the extracellular potassium concentration increases, the resting membrane potential gets less negative. This is important because the resting membrane potential (the flat part before the action potential gets going) directly impacts the number of voltage-gated sodium channels available to generate the action potential. Fewer sodium channels means slower impulse conduction and prolonged membrane depolarization. How do we see this? QRS widening, P wave prolongation, PR widening ...

From: Matt & Linda Crocker ,crockerm at peak_org, , Subject: liquid potassium calculations , , I have liquid K2O, 25% potassium and 17% sulfur and I dont know how , to measure it out. What amount would I add to a 60g tank to get to , 20ppm? The first question is what you actually have there. It definitely isnt K2O - that is an artefact of the obsolete analysis numbers given for fertilisers. With potassium and sulphur there, I would wonder if it might contain potassium sulphate, but that is nowhere near soluble enough in water to give 25% potassium, and the K/S ratio is way off. 60 U.S. gallons is about 230 litres, so you would need 4.6 grams of potassium to get there. I find the 25% very difficult to believe (in a liquid), so I dont think it is sufficient just to multiply the 4.6 grams by 4. I think some more investigation of this stuff is called for. -- Paul Sears Ottawa, Canada ...

A potassium test may be used to detect low potassium or high potassium levels as part of a health checkup or in the evaluation of conditions such as kidney disease, heart disease or high blood pressure. Potassium is an electrolyte that is important in muscle function, helping to transmit messages between nerves and muscles, and is important to heart function.
Potassium supplements are almost always found in a compound form, ie potassium attached to other molecules. The human body is not able to sufficiently break down compound minerals. Therefore, the potassium that is used is a small percentage of what is consumed. This applies to many of the capsules, pills and powders on the market, which have an absorption rate of between twenty to forty-five percent. Liquid ionic mineral supplements, on the contrary, have an absorption rate of close to one hundred percent. In order to be utilized, the elemental form, or free ionic form of Potassium is required. The molecules have to be small enough to be absorbed into each cell. Potassium must therefore be water soluble, which means that that it cannot build up within the body. This ensures that the mineral will not reach levels of toxicity ...

Inulin, sodium, potassium, and chloride were determined on identical samples of serum and fluid collected from the kidney tubules of Necturus under urethan anesthesia. Inulin fluid-serum ratios obtained were as follows: highest ratios for proximal tubules approximated 2, indicating a reabsorption of about 50%, of filtered water; highest ratios for distal tubules were near 3.4; ratios for sodium remained near 1 in proximal tubules, tending to be lowest near the ends of the segments. There was an abrupt drop in sodium concentration in the early part (thin segment) of the distal tubules, which may be made possible by the better oxygen supply in this region. Chloride ratios rose to 1.12 in the proximal tubules and chloride concentrations fell over the same region, as did sodium. Potassium ratios remained close to 1 in the proximal tubules, indicating that up to one-half of the filtered potassium may be reabsorbed there. Distal tubule potassium ratios showed great variability, some being higher and ...

Cellular ionic balance relies on ion channels and coupled transporters to maintain and use the transmembrane electrochemical gradients of the cations Na+ and K+. High intracellular K+ concentration provides a ready reserve within the body allowing epithelia to secrete K+into the fluid covering the apical membrane in the service of numerous physiologic activities. A major role for transepithelial K+ secretion concerns the balance of total body K+ such that excretion of excess K+ in the diet safeguards against disturbances to cellular balance. Accomplishing this transepithelial flow involves two archetypical cellular mechanisms, Na+ absorption and Clr secretion. Ion channels for K+, Na+, and Clr , as well as cotransporters, exchangers, and pumps contribute to produce transepithelial flow by coupling electrochemical gradients such that K+ flow enters across the basolateral membrane and exits through the apical membrane. Beyond excretion, transepithelial K+ secretion serves to create the high K+

Of all the minerals present in the body, potassium is close to the top of the list when considered by quantity. Accordingly, it is important to maintain sufficient levels as part of a normal diet.. It is an electrolyte that helps to maintain the health of several organs as well as the processes for which they are required.. They are needed by all of us and are available from a wide range of foods, such as chicken, salmon, whole milk, potatoes and almonds. Though the processes used to prepare some food can often result in many of the nutrients being depleted, including potassium.. Many people should be able to get a sufficient amount of potassium with a normal balanced diet. However, those who are unable to achieve this, such as due to allergies or other dietary restrictions, will benefit from taking a supplement..

DtviL THE ANTAGONISTIC ACTION OF MAGNESIUM AND POTASSIUM W. J. V. OSTERHOTJT (with three figures) It has been previously pointed out^ that potassium may inhibit more or less fully the poisonous effects of magnesium and that the abundance of potassium in the soil makes this inhibitory action of importance in soil investigations. Loew and Aso^ have criticized this statement. Their objections are that only chlorids were used and that no flowering plants were investigated. In the present paper these objections are fully met. The experiments extend over a wide range of forms and their general agreement furnishes conclusive proof of the above-mentioned action of potassium. The technique employed has already been described in previous papers in this journal.^ The material was placed in glass dishes con- taining 100-300^^ of the ...

To reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, the World Health Organization recommends we consume no more than 2000 mg of sodium a day - less than a teaspoon of salt. At the same time, the WHO recommends we consume at least 3510 mg of potassium daily, again to lower our odds of heart disease and stroke. Thats a lot of potassium. Potatoes, for example, are considered to be a relatively potassium-rich food. Yet to get to 3510 mg a day you would have to eat about six potatoes day. Or drink 9 cups of milk. Or eat 2 1/2 cups of beet greens - a day.
Method of Action. Potassium is principally found within cellular fluids and its counterpart, sodium, is mostly found within the extracellular fluids. The segregation of these two ions occurs by means of an adenosine triphosphate (ATP) driven "pump." The pump consists of two proteins within the cellular membrane which, upon energy release from ATP, transport three sodium molecules to the outside of the cell membrane, while simultaneously bringing in two potassium molecules.. A similar pumping mechanism is used in the transport of glucose from the intestine into the bloodstream. High sodium concentrations in the intestinal fluids tend to promote the movement of sodium across the mucosal cells of the intestine. As sodium is moved across the cells, glucose is concomitantly moved into the cells. The concentration of glucose within the cells builds up until it begins to diffuse into the bloodstream. The "pump" mechanism pumps the sodium into the blood in exchange for potassium, thereby eliminating ...
Both high and low doses of CORT caused a modest depolarization of BLA neurons. Several mechanisms might account for this effect, including the inhibition of the sodium-potassium pump, of the resting K+ conductance, or of a voltage-dependent K+ current activated near rest. Because the membrane depolarization was observed without a significant increase in Rin in the low-dose CORT group, it is more likely that the effect of CORT is mediated by an inhibition of the sodium-potassium pump.. In contrast, the increase in Rin seen with the high dose of CORT probably involved the inhibition of one or more K+ currents such as the K+ leak or of a K+ conductance that is active near rest. Moreover, the fact that the high CORT dose markedly reduced spike-frequency adaptation suggests that CORT also inhibited one or more subtype(s) of voltage-gated or Ca2+-dependent K+ currents that are activated in the suprathreshold range of membrane potentials. In support of this hypothesis, previous studies have revealed ...

The drive down went as smoothly as it could in that he had no bradys or desats, a common theme in this particular illness (unlike in his history). The paramedic was very nice and attentive. She said Sams T waves on the EKG were really elevated, but somehow I think his has always looked like that. His EKG has always looked different than the typical, but I dont fully understand these patterns. She said it might be the electrolytes, which made sense. It seems Sam was hypokalemic with very low potassium at this point. His sodium was low, potassium low, co2 low, chloride low, Protein low, albumin low, basically it was all off but the potassium seemed to remain our issue throughout the next few days. It was 2.2 in the Shands ER but by Friday, after a day of IV fluids D10 and potassium boluses, he went to 2.6 and finally got up to 4.1.

Abstract:. Chronic kidney disease appears worldwide. In the United States, the number of patients suffering from kid- ney failure doubled from 1998 to 2010. A common treat- ment for these patients is haemodialysis. However, the frequency of deaths caused by cardiovascular diseases is up to 10% to 30% higher in patients undergoing dialysis than in the general population. To analyse the underly- ing effects and for a possible risk prediction, a continuous monitoring of the ionic concentrations that are influenced by dialysis is desired. In this work, a method for the re- construction of the ionic concentrations of calcium and potassium from the ECG is proposed. In a first step, 91 monodomain simulations with the ten Tusscher ventricular cell model were performed for different extracellular ionic concentrations. From there, a standard 12-lead ECG was extracted. Calcium and potassium changes yielded ECGs clearly differing in amplitude and morphology. In a second step, the simulated ECG signals were ...

To more clearly define the role of the transepithelial electrical potential difference (V m→s), potassium permeability, and sodium-potassium pump rate in transcellular potassium transport by isolated turtle colon, we measured transmural potassium fluxes under open-circuit conditions in the presence and absence of putative blockers of potassium transport: amiloride and barium. The results were consistent with the notion that V m→s is a major determinant of cellular potassium secretion, whereas active potassium absorption is insensitive to changes in V m→s. These observations suggest that coupling between colonic sodium absorption and potassium secretion in vivo could be due primarily to the effect of the lumen negative V m→s on transcellular secretory potassium flow. Amiloride-induced inhibition of potassium secretion appeared to be due to the reductions in V m→s and sodium-potassium pump rate that accompanied the inhibition of active sodium absorption.

The nonfiltering kidney model was used to determine whether sodium or potassium inhibits renin secretion in the absence of a functional macula densa in dogs with thoracic inferior vena caval constriction. The control rate of renin secretion was high, and decreases were readily recognized. After control observations, hypertonic sodium chloride or hypertonic potassium chloride was infused into the renal artery for 1 hour, and renin secretion was measured at 15-minute intervals. An increase in renal venous plasma sodium concentration from 141 to 154-158 mEq/liter caused no change in renin secretion for the first 45 minutes of infusion in dogs with a nonfiltering kidney. In contrast, dogs with thoracic caval constriction but with a filtering kidney showed a striking decrease in renin secretion during intrarenal sodium infusion (3,097 to 1,061 ng angiotensin/min, P ,0.02). An increase in renal venous plasma potassium concentration from 3.9 to 6.1 mEq/liter in one group of dogs and from 4.9 to 8.3 ...
An alkaline hydrolysate of Bacillus thuringiensis var kurstaki HD1 (Btk) parasporal crystals was administered at 25 micrograms ml-1 (f.c.) to isolated, short-circuited, midguts of tobacco hornworm (Manduca sexta) larvae. The short-circuit current (s.c.c.), a precise measure of K+ active transport, was inhibited by 78% in 10 min in Btk-treated midguts as compared to controls. The elemental concentrations of K, together with Na, Mg, P, S, Cl and Ca, as well as the water content, were determined by electron probe X-ray microanalysis (EPXMA) in the muscle cells, columnar cells and goblet cells, as well as in the extracellular goblet cavity and the bathing media. The average K concentration in the goblet cell cavity was 129 mmol/kg wet wt in control midguts but only 37 mmol/kg wet wt in Btk-treated midguts. The elemental concentrations, including that of K, in other cell compartments were much less affected by Btk, but a rise in total cell calcium is suggested. It has been previously suggested that ...

Canine cardiac Purkinje fibers exposed to sodium-free solutions containing 16 mM CaCl2, 20 mM tetraethylammonium chloride, 108 mM tetramethylammonium chloride, and 2.7 mM KCl may be quiescent at a resting potential of either -50 mV or -90 mV. The membrane potential of these fibers can be switched from -50 mV to -90 mV by a hyperpolarizing current pulse and from -90 mV to -50 mV by a depolarizing current pulse. The transition from -50 mV to -90 mV depends on a voltage-dependent increase in potassium conductance, that conductance being low at -50 mV and high at -90 mV. A reduction in potassium conductance causes the fiber to depolarize from -90 mV to -50 mV because of the presence of an inward current which apparently is carried mainly by Ca. Fibers that show a high resting potential cannot be excited except by depolarizing stimuli strong enough to move the membrane from -90 mV to a threshold potential of about -40 mV. Fibers that show a low resting potential are more easily excited and may show ...
Hyperkalemia in diabetes is not uncommon, and has been thought to reflect renal retention of potassium. The goal of this study was to test this hypothesis by measuring total body potassium in hyperkalemic diabetic patients and normokalemic diabetic controls. We measured total body potassium (whole body counting of 40K), total body sodium, calcium, and chloride by neutron activation analysis, total body carbon by inelastic neutron scattering, and total body water from the distribution of 3H20.
Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis. by: Joe Hing Kwok Chu. Other names: familial periodic paralysis, periodic paralysis. @. Hypokalemic periodic paralysis is a congenital disorder that occurs within certain families and causes intermittent episodes of muscle weakness or paralysis. The attacks can occur from daily to yearly and may last for a few hours or for several days. There is a low level of potassium in the bloodstream (hypokalemia) during the attack. But the serum potassium levels are normal between attacks.. There is no potassium deficiency in the whole body. Hypokalemia is low blood levels of potassium (low serum potassium). The following can cause hypokalemia. Alcoholism. Hypokalemic attack may be precipitated by the administration of oral glucose, 1.5g/kg body weight (up to 100 g). Intravenous administration of insulin, maximum 0.1 U/kg body weight at 30 and 60 minutes, during the infusion may aid in precipitating attacks. Diet high in sugar (carbohydrates).
