Studies involving micropuncture and microperfusion of single nephrons require the handling of very small fluid samples. To facilitate handling, the tubule fluids are normally manipulated under paraffin oil. Calcium and, to a lesser extent, magnesium and phosphate concentrations may change significantly when placed in hydrated paraffin oil. Fluids of(More)
Old age is linked to numerous changes of body functions such as salivation, gastrointestinal motility, and permeability all linked to central and enteric nervous system decline. Thus, gut motility and barrier functions suffer. Sialic acid plays a key role in the nervous system at large and for many receptor functions specifically. Decreased sialylation in(More)
Acute normocapnic hypoxemia can cause functional renal insufficiency by increasing renal vascular resistance (RVR), leading to renal hypoperfusion and decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) activity is low in fetuses and newborns and further decreases during hypoxia. IGF-1 administration to humans and adult animals(More)
