Arachidonic acid metabolism in a cell suspension isolated from rabbit renal outer medulla.

We studied arachidonic acid (AA) metabolism by a cell suspension containing principally cells of the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle (TALH) obtained from the inner stripe of the outer medulla of the rabbit kidney. Based on comparison of specific activities of enzymes before and after separation, alkaline phosphatase, Na+-K+-adenosine… (More)
