Anesthetized, nondiuretic rats and hamsters were infused with C14-labeled inulin-carboxylic acid or urea, and fluid was subsequently collected by micropuncture from surface tubules in the rats and ...

Micropuncture Study of Inulin Absorption in the Rat Kidney
TLDR
Urine collected separately from the two kidneys showed negligible amounts of inulin activity on the noninjected side, thus demonstrating directly that there is no significant reabsorption by the renal tubular epithelium under these conditions.
MICROPUNCTURE STUDY OF RENAL POTASSIUM EXCRETION IN THE RAT.
TLDR
Samples of proximal and distal tubular fluid were collected from rats maintained on a control, a low-K, or a high- K, low-Na diet and inulin-C14 was administered.
The effect of vasopressin (Pitressin) administration and dehydration on the concentration of solutes in renal fluids of rats with and without hereditary hypothalamic diabetes insipidus
1. The method of sequential centrifugation has been used to obtain fluid samples from both the renal papilla and inner medulla of the rat.
Regulation of thick ascending limb transport by vasopressin.
TLDR
Renal water conservation occurs as a result of the combined functions of the loop of Henle and the collecting duct, both of which are regulated by the peptide hormone vasopressin.
Transport of Electrolytes Across Renal Tubules
By the 1930s a consensus had been reached that the formation of urine by the kidneys could be accounted for by three processes: filtration of a large amount of fluid in the glomerulus under the
The effect of urea loading on volume and concentration of urine in rabbits
1. To find how urea contributes to the water‐conserving ability of a herbivore's kidney, groups of ten young rabbits on a low‐protein diet and at three different levels of dietary electrolyte were
Urinary Concentrating and Diluting Processes
TLDR
Body fluid osmolality is normally maintained within narrow bounds through the control of body water balance through the regulation of renal water excretion.
Influence of prehydration on the changes in renal tissue composition induced by water diuresis in the rat
1. The composition of renal tissue was determined in rats before and immediately after intravenous infusion of dextrose (2·5 g/100 ml.) in amounts sufficient to administer a positive fluid load of 4%

The sodium and urea content of papillary and -cortical tissue in rat kidneys was determined at various diuretic stages, induced by thirst, oral respectively i.v. load with water, different
Micropuncture study of water, electrolytes, and urea movements along the loops of henle in psammomys.
TLDR
The mechanism by which the osmotic pressure increases in tubular fluid along the descending limb of the loop of Henle was examined in Psammomys undergoing salt diuresis and a medullary recycling of both ions occurred between ascending and descending limbs is suggested.
