  • This occurs through increased transcription and insertion of water channels (Aquaporin-2) into the apical membrane of collecting tubule and collecting duct epithelial cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • heart
  • A decreased arterial blood volume, (such as can occur in cirrhosis, nephrosis and heart failure), stimulates secretion, even in the face of decreased osmolality of the plasma: it supersedes osmolality, but with a milder effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • high ferritin levels occur in many such states, however, the most sensitive test for iron deficiency is bone marrow examination. (labcorp.com)

  • children
