The effects of (1-desamino-8-d-arginine) vasopressin (dDAVP) on water and electrolyte transport in the distal tubule were investigated by micropuncture. Since, in addition to antidiuretic hormone, parathyroid hormone, calcitonin and glucagon stimulate the adenylate-cyclase system in this nephron segment, experiments were performed on hormone-deprived rats, i.e. homozygous DI Brattleboro rats with reduced levels of endogenous parathyroid hormone, calcitonin and glucagon. Along the distal tubule… CONTINUE READING
