  • diuretic
  • The Loop of Henle contributes to the absorption of approximately 25% of filtered sodium and can be targeted by diuretic therapy. (teachmephysiology.com)
  • The protein bound nature of the loop diuretic molecules causes it to be secreted via several transporter molecules along luminal wall of the proximal convoluted tubules to be able to exert its function. (wikipedia.org)
  • Loop and thiazide diuretic use (the most common cause of hypomagnesemia) Antibiotics (i.e. aminoglycoside, amphotericin, pentamidine, gentamicin, tobramycin, viomycin) block resorption in the loop of Henle. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tienilic acid (INN and BAN) or ticrynafen (USAN) is a loop diuretic drug with uric acid-lowering (uricosuric) action, formerly marketed for the treatment of hypertension. (wikipedia.org)
  • limbs
  • What is the effect of the differing permeabilities between the limbs of the loop of Henle? (brainscape.com)
  • We performed a transcriptome analysis in medullary thick ascending limbs (mTALs) of the loop of Henle isolated from Dahl salt-sensitive (SS) rats and salt-insensitive consomic SS.13 BN rats on either 0.4% or 7 days of 8% NaCl diet (n=4). (ahajournals.org)
  • vasa
  • The vasa recta have a similar loop shape so that the gradient does not dissipate into the plasma. (wikipedia.org)
  • segment
  • In the third segment of the loop, the tubule wall can, if necessary, effect further removal of salt, even against the concentration gradient, in an active-transport process requiring the expenditure of energy. (britannica.com)
  • filtrate
  • Calcium phosphate in trace amounts is common, as brushite is supersaturated at the higher pH and filtrate concentration usually occurring at the loop of Henle , and crystals formed may act as heterogeneous nuclei for calcium oxalate stones . (thefreedictionary.com)

  • kidney
  • Etacrynic acid (INN) or ethacrynic acid (USAN), trade name Edecrin, is a loop diuretic used to treat high blood pressure and the swelling caused by diseases like congestive heart failure, liver failure, and kidney failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • forms
  • This is combined with a small area of tissue macrophages are the loop of henle forms the relay center for processing of b lymphocyte is designed in such formulations, there are four types Tidal volume (tv) and the relative enthalpies and entropies of fusion for solutes the solvatochromic approach. (euskalmusika.com)
  • ducts
  • Cuboidal epithelial cells with relatively unstained (i.e, pale) cytoplasm belong to collecting ducts , which are larger than the tubules of the loop of Henle. (siumed.edu)
  • transport
  • Specifically when set up in a loop with a buffering liquid between the incoming and outgoing fluid running in a circuit, and with active transport pumps on the outgoing fluid's tubes, the system is called a countercurrent multiplier, enabling a multiplied effect of many small pumps to gradually build up a large concentration in the buffer liquid. (wikipedia.org)
  • This reduces medullary osmolality and thus impairs the concentration of urine in the loop of Henle (which usually uses the high osmotic and solute gradient to transport solutes and water). (wikipedia.org)
  • concentration
  • The tube leading to the loop passively building up a gradient of heat (or cooling) or solvent concentration while the returning tube has a constant small pumping action all along it, so that a gradual intensification of the heat or concentration is created towards the loop. (wikipedia.org)
  • length
  • Countercurrent multiplication is a similar but different concept where liquid moves in a loop followed by a long length of movement in opposite directions with an intermediate zone. (wikipedia.org)
