Kinetics of sodium-lithium countertransport in normotensive and hypertensive subjects.

Abstract

The kinetic parameters Vmax and Km of erythrocyte sodium-lithium countertransport (Na-Li CT), and the lithium cell to plasma ratio (Li C:P) measured 24 h after a 1-g oral dose of Li2CO3, were determined in 14 normotensive (NT) and 14 untreated mild hypertensive (HT) males matched for age and weight. Li C:P and Na-Li CT were strongly correlated (r = -0.73… (More)
