In order to assess the linearity of the mechanisms subserving renal blood flow autoregulation, broad-band arterial pressure fluctuations at three different power levels were induced experimentally and the resulting renal blood flow responses were recorded. Linear system analysis methods were applied in both the time and frequency domain. In the frequency(More)
We previously showed that acute arterial hypertension induces an inhibition of fluid and NaCl reabsorption in proximal tubules of Sprague-Dawley rats, which is associated with a rapid reversible internalization of apical Na(+)/H(+) exchanger in brush border. To determine whether there is a corresponding inhibition of apical Na(+)/H(+) exchanger activity in(More)
Biological time series often display complex oscillations with several interacting rhythmic components. Renal autoregulation, for instance, involves at least two separate mechanisms both of which can produce oscillatory variations in the pressures and flows of the individual nephrons. Using double-wavelet analysis we propose a method to examine how the(More)
On the basis of double-wavelet analysis, the paper proposes a method to study interactions in the form of frequency and amplitude modulation in nonstationary multimode data series. Special emphasis is given to the problem of quantifying the strength of modulation for a fast signal by a coexisting slower dynamics and to its physiological interpretation.(More)
This article presents results of the use of a novel methodology employing principal dynamic modes (PDM) for modeling the nonlinear dynamics of renal autoregulation in rats. The analyzed experimental data are broadband (0-0.5 Hz) blood pressure-flow data generated by pseudorandom forcing and collected in normotensive and hypertensive rats for two levels of(More)
The potential role of integrins in the myogenic mechanism was studied in the rat afferent arteriole (AA) by fluorescence immunolocalization and microperfusion of isolated AA. Confocal fluorescence images were acquired from frozen sections of rat kidney after indirect immunostaining for various integrin beta- and alpha-subunits. The beta 1-, beta 3-, alpha(More)
Two models of ypertonic urine formation in the inner medulla were tested. The active model asserts that thin ascending limbs of Henle's loop (ALH) reasorb NaCl hypertonically by active transport; the passive model suggests the reabsorption is by diffusion down a concentration gradient. Using (Na+) in ascending vasa recta (AVR) as a measure of interstitial(More)
SUMMARY Oscillations in mean arterial blood pressure (MABP) with periods near 1.5 hours were observed in conscious male dogs with pressure transducers implanted in their aortas. Cardiac output (CO) was measured with an electromagnetic flow probe implanted about the ascending aorta, and total peripheral resistance (TPR) was calculated as the ratio of MABP to(More)
Measurement of cell volume in living epithelial cells has become an important technique in studies of membrane transport processes that function in cell volume regulation. Planimetry of video images of optical sections enables the measurement of the cross sectional area of each section. Cell volume is calculated from the measured area of each section and(More)
Hydrostatic pressures were measured in cortical tubules, long loops of Henle, terminal collecting ducts, and in vasa recta in hamsters. In hydropenia, the loops of Henle and terminal collecting ducts provided the major fluid flow resistances, as judged by the location of hydrostatic pressure drops. In mannitol or saline diuresis, hydrostatic pressures in(More)
