New sensitive markers for the detection of experimental ascending pyelonephritis.


Kinetic parameters (Km and Vmax) of renal brush border membrane (BBM) enzymes alkaline phosphatase, maltase, leucine-aminopeptidase and gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase were used as markers for the early detection of pyelonephritis. Km of all the enzymes studied remained unaltered. The Vmax of all the enzymes studied were found to be significantly decreased (p… (More)
