A ratio 34.5 NA+/O2, or 5.8 Na+/ATP is obtained for the ouabain sensitive sodium pump, which accounts for 50% of sodium transport in the perfused kidney. Na-K-ATP'ase activity accounts for 15% of renal O2 uptake and sodium transport may account for only 30% of renal oxygen uptake. 2. Hydrogen ion secretion requires little extra energy. An increase in… CONTINUE READING
