PTHrP is secreted by most cell types. In addition to a paracrine/autocrine role, PTHrP has "intracrine" actions, entering the nuclear compartment under the direction of a classic bipartite nuclear localization signal. In vascular smooth muscle cells, nuclear entry stimulates mitogenesis. In the current study, we sought to more precisely define the regions(More)
4-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) synthesis was examined in purified glomeruli and tubules of rat kidney cortex that were incubated in the presence of [2,3-3H2]glutamate. The GABA that was formed was separated from glutamate using anion-exchange resin, and identified by means of an automatic amino acid analyser. In the renal cortex only the tubules were able to(More)
