Increased gene expression of water channel in cirrhotic rat kidneys.

Abstract

In patients with liver cirrhosis, impaired water and sodium excretion has been incriminated in the pathogenesis of ascites formation. Increased reabsorption of water in the distal nephron has been shown to play an important role in water retention in cirrhotic rat kidneys. Recently, a complementary DNA (cDNA) for the vasopressin-regulated water channel (the… (More)
