Micropuncture study on urea movements in the kidney cortical tubules of low protein fed sheep.


Micropuncture studies of late proximal, early and late distal cortical tubules were carried out on kidneys of normal (NP) and low (LP) protein fed sheep in order to investigate the participation of these segments in the urea sparing induced by protein restriction in the diet. A low protein diet induced significant reductions in the fractional (-54%) and… (More)
