Effect of fluoroacetate on the inhibitory action of ketone bodies and fatty acids on renal ammoniagenesis.


Renal cortical slices from acidotic dogs (NH4CL) were incubated at pH 7.0 with L-glutamine (1 and 5 mM) or L-glutamate (5 mM) with or without DL-beta-hydroxyburyrate 1 mM, acetoacetate 0.5 mM, as well as oleate, palmitate, octanoate, and crotonate 0.5 mM and in the presence or absence of fluoroacetate 0.05 mM. Fluoroacetate alone increased glutamine or… (More)
