These studies examine the effect of dietary K content on the rate efflux coefficient (KK) assessed both isotopically (42K) and by net K flux in segments dissected from the inner stripe of the outer medullary collecting tubule (MCT). Female New Zealand White rabbits were given either a K-replete diet (KCl diet) or one of two K-restricted diets with similar (142 meq K/kg diet) K content [basic (Na-deplete) diet or NaCl (Na-replete) diet]. After 7 days, renal K excretion (mmol/24 h) varied with K… CONTINUE READING
