The mechanism whereby an infusion of amino acids (AA) leads to increments in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and renal plasma flow (RPF) is incompletely understood. Dopamine (DA) is a catecholamine in which known actions at low doses include the ability to increase both GFR and RPF. Furthermore, urinary DA excretion has been shown to be augmented after an oral protein load. We therefore studied the renal hemodynamic response to intravenous infusion of a 10% mixed AA solution in anesthetized… CONTINUE READING
