Exogenous 5'-nucleotidase improves glomerular autoregulation in Thy-1 nephritic rats.


Experiments were performed to characterize renal hemodynamics in Thy-1 nephritic rats. A monoclonal antibody against Thy-1 was intravenously injected to induce mesangiolysis in rats, and 2 days later renal hemodynamic responses to variations in blood pressure were determined. In the first series of experiments, autoregulation of renal plasma flow (RPF) or… (More)
