The distal nephron plays a critical role in the renal control of homeostasis. Until very recently most studies focused on the control of Na(+), K(+), and water balance by principal cells of the collecting duct and the regulation of solute and water by hormones from the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and by antidiuretic hormone. However, recent studies have revealed the unexpected importance of renal intercalated cells, a subtype of cells present in the connecting tubule and collecting… CONTINUE READING
