Potassium transport in the early distal tubule of Amphiuma kidney. Effects of potassium adaptation.

Studies were performed to investigate potassium transport in early distal tubule of the doubly-perfused kidney of Amphiuma under control conditions and following K-adaptation. Double barreled K-sensitive microelectrodes were used in stationary microperfusion experiments. Net K-flux was evaluated along with measurements of both cell membrane potential and… CONTINUE READING
