Extracellular Acid-Base Balance and Ion Transport Between Body Fluid Compartments.
A process of internal and external balance for pH regulation, similar to that of potassium, is suggested in the context of secretory gastrointestinal epithelia and renal epithelias with respect to normal pH homeostasis and clinical disorders.
Role of AT2R (Angiotensin Type 2 Receptor) in Maintaining Sodium-Potassium Balance.
There is ample evidence demonstrating the natriuretic role of the AT2R (angiotensin type 2 receptor) in normal and pathological conditions, and AT2 R expressed in the proximal tubule seems to play a significant role in natriuresis potentially via inhibition of sodium transporters, such as the NKA.
Fractional excretion of K, Na and Cl following furosemide infusion in healthy, young and very old people
FuroSemide test showed a significantly lower average post-furosemide FE of potassium value, delayed post- furosemides peak FE of Na, K and Cl and a hormonal pattern of aldosterone resistance in very old people.
Excretion of Cesium Through Potassium Transport Pathway in the Gills of a Marine Teleost
The activation of ROMK in the gill MR cells induced by K+ supplementation could eliminate unnecessary biochemical analogs of K+ more rapidly, possibly serving as an effective countermeasure against radiocesium in aquaculture.
Mineral metabolism in dimethylnitrosamine-induced hepatic fibrosis.
An investigation into the bioaccessibility of potassium in unprocessed fruits and vegetables
The relatively poor bioaccessibility of potassium diminishes the perceived nutritive value of these foods with regard to potassium intake, which is attributed to the cellular structure of plant foods.
Excretion of cesium and rubidium via the branchial potassium-transporting pathway in Mozambique tilapia
Findings indicate that the gills of seawater-adapted Mozambique tilapia eliminate unnecessary Cs+ and Rb+ in the body fluid, presumably through the same pathway as the K+ excretion in MR cells.
Dietary Potassium and Cardiovascular Disease: Clinical Applications
This evidence is based on the results of population studies showing that prevalence of hypertension in populations consuming high-potassium-Iow-sodium diets is very low, whereas nearly one-third of the population of industrialized countries that have adopted a low-pot potassium-high-Sodium diet develops hypertension.
