The intracellular free calcium concentration [Ca2+]i of rat medullary collecting tubules was calculated from microscope fluorescence measurements in single pieces of fura-2-loaded tubules superfused at 37 °C. When carbachol (10−4–10−3M) was added in the superfusate, a biphasic increase in [Ca2+]i was generally obtained, which included an early peak phase and a sustained plateau thereafter; sometimes, the peak phase was not apparent; the plateau was maintained as long as the agonist was applied… CONTINUE READING
