Single, defined nephron segments were dissected in vitro from fresh slices of neonatal and mature rabbit kidney. Na-K-ATPase was quantified for six different tubule segments with an ultramicromethod. The enzyme distribution pattern in the neonatal nephron was similar to that in the mature nephron. Activity in distal segments was 2-5 times higher than proximal tubule activity referred to tissue dry weight, and 2 times higher referred to tubule length. Neonatal enzyme activity was lower than… CONTINUE READING
