A direct evaluation of the Gertz hypothesis on single rat proximal tubulesin vivo: Failure of the tubular volume to be the sole determinant of the reabsorptive rate


Studies have been undertaken to directly test the predictions of the Gertz hypothesis on single proximal tubules of the rat kidneyin vivo. By altering the resistance to flow at the end of single proximal tubules, either by means of external obstruction by a glass device or by decompression secondary to fenestration of the last segment, marked changes in… (More)
