Role of renal nerves and dopamine on prostaglandin E release from the kidney of rats.

The aim of the study is to investigate the role of renal nerves and dopamine (DA) on urinary excretion of prostaglandin E (PGE) released from kidney with or without salt loading in rats. After excessive intake of high Na, urinary excretions of PGE and DA enhanced as compared with those of basal Na. In rats with renal denervation, urinary excretion of PGE… CONTINUE READING
