Pathways and regulation of ammoniagenesis by the LLC-PK1 cells in culture.


LLC-PK1 kidney epithelial cells grown under the condition of continuous rocking exhibit a variety of differentiated functions of proximal tubular epithelium, including pH-modulated ammoniagenesis. To further determine their value as a model system, we investigated the pathways of ammoniagenesis under both normal conditions and acid-base manipulations. Pulse… (More)
