The present in vitro study was performed to investigate the effect of the nephrotoxic anticancer agent cisplatin (CP) on lipid peroxidation, on pyruvate-stimulated gluconeogenesis and on p-aminohippurate (PAH) accumulation in rat renal cortical slices. In addition, the inhibitory effects of the antioxidants and radical scavengers(More)
The in vitro effect of cyclosporine A (CsA) on lipid peroxidation (LPO) in hepatic and renal microsomes (male Wistar rats) were investigated either with different CsA concentrations (0.3-1000 micrograms/ml), incubation time 3 h or for different periods of time (0.5-3.0 h) at a CsA concentration of 1000 micrograms/ml. LPO was monitored by measuring the(More)
Using the stop flow microperfusion technique with simultaneous capillary perfusion the secretory rate of H+ ions in the proximal tubule was evaluated by measuring the level flow reabsorption as well as the static head concentration difference of 3H labeled glycodiazine. At ambient glycodiazine concentration of 21 mmol/l the level flow reabsorption is in the(More)
The present study was designed to compare the nephrotoxicity induced by the three platinum compounds cisplatin (CDDP), carboplatin (CBDCA) and transplatin (TDDP) in vitro and to obtain information to elucidate the mechanism of platinum compound-induced nephrotoxicity. Rat or rabbit renal cortical slices were incubated for different periods of time in(More)
A novel, computer-assisted program was developed to analyze the time course of Na+-glucose cotransport by rat renal cortical brush-border membrane vesicles (BBMV). Transporter characteristics can be measured, which routine kinetic analyses fail to distinguish: cotransporter membrane density is derived from the picomoles of D-glucose bound per milligram of(More)
The present study was designed to elucidate whether cephaloridine-induced lipid peroxidation is inhibited by probenecid, cobalt chloride and antioxidants such as alpha-tocopherol and N,N'-diphenyl-p-phenylenediamine (DPPD). Kidney slices obtained from the renal cortex of male Wistar rats were incubated for 1 h in a cephaloridine or cefotaxime (1.25-10(More)
Quantitative studies of endogenous lysozyme (low molecular weight protein) were performed in rats. Urine and plasma concentrations of lysozyme and inulin were measured spectrophotometrically. An improved lysozyme assay (standard curve established by using egg white-lysozyme) enabled us to determine the mean plasma concentration of endogenous lysozyme (4.4(More)
The effect of cyclosporine A (CsA) on lipid peroxidation (LPO) was assessed in renal cortical slices and renal microsomes. Cortical slices were incubated with 1500 micrograms/ml CsA and microsomes with 0.5-20 micrograms/ml under identical conditions (pH 7.4, 37 degrees C) for 3 hours, and LPO monitored by the formation of malondialdehyde (MDA). CsA at(More)
