Flow induces cytosolic Ca(2+) increases ([Ca(2+)](i)) in intact renal tubules, but the mechanism is elusive. Mechanical stimulation in general is known to promote release of nucleotides (ATP/UTP) and trigger auto- and paracrine activation of P2 receptors in renal epithelia. It was hypothesized that the flow-induced [Ca(2+)](i) response in the renal tubule(More)
