Effects of water load on renal glomerular and tubular function in desert quail.


Effects of an acute intravenous water load on glomerular and tubular function were studied in the anesthetized desert quail Lophortyx gambelii. Total-kidney glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and single-nephron glomerular filtration rates (SNGFR) of reptilian-type and mammalian-type nephrons increased by more than 50% compared with the GFR and SNGFRs measured… (More)
