Salicylic acid induces changes in the physical properties of model and native kidney membranes.


Salicylic acid (SA) can inhibit the facilitated transport of inorganic sulfate in the kidney, placenta, and erythrocytes. One mechanism of this inhibition could involve the interaction of SA with membranes, resulting in altered function of transporter protein(s) due to changes in membrane fluidity. Such membrane effects could result in altered membrane… (More)
